How will my money be used to further Alonesy’s mission?
1. Capacity building- To protect the privacy of our mentees and mentors, we limit communication to the Alonesy app. We use API’s for our chat, audio call, and video call that charge us scaled against our monthly usage. We have a limited budget to accommodate mentees on our app. With this grant, we will be able to expand, by increasing our technology budget, to reach more teenagers.
2. Hiring Medical Professionals- Our mentors undergo a rigorous curriculum to understand the various situations they may encounter while mentoring teenager with mental health illnesses. However, our mentors are not licensed medical professionals. We anticipate that in the future we may encounter escalated issues that are beyond the capacity of our mentors. With this grant, we can consult with licensed medical professionals.
3. Upgrading Software Suites- We use several software suites that offer limited functionality at the free level. With this grant, we will be able to upgrade our software suites that will make our organization more efficient. For example, we are using PandaDoc to send confidential documents and any documents that require signatures. However, with this free option, we do not have access to templates and add our Alonesy branding that will allow us to save time and look more professional.
4. Future App Releases- Our app is launching this week with the first version of the app. Despite the hours we spent on the first version, we understand that our app is not perfect. However, we would like to update our app based on feedback we receive from mentors and mentees and this would require extending our contract with the app development company.
