iThrive Wake is a GIS map and mobile application created by the Youth Thrive program, dedicated to resources and support for young people, who in turn crowdsource the data for the app. This collaborative maps organizations and services for the school system’s population, allowing young people and their families to find resources closest to their community by specific category. Young people trained in GIS through 4H Youth Development expand on the map by identifying new points of reference, along with supporting data about how to access each point.
