Always moving. Always forward.

Check out our current projects and see how we're changing the world one plus at a time.

Affordable Housing Application

This project was brought to Change++ by The Wond’ry at Vanderbilt University.

Given the rapid development and urbanization of Nashville, the cost of housing has dramatically increased, and affordable housing options seem to be on the decline. Change++ is working to approach this problem by developing an application that can provide a map of affordable housing for any specific level of income and affordability.

We are well aware that an affordable lifestyle does not come only with housing. Therefore, we are also working to integrate lifestyle options, such as restaurants, night life, concerts, and more, that correspond to the indicated level of affordability. We believe this application will be of great use to anyone living in Nashville, anyone considering moving to the area, and current and future college students in the city.  

LatinX and Black Peabody Student/Alumni Database

Change ++ is working to develop databases for Hispanic students and alumni at Vanderbilt and similarly, for black Peabody students and alumni. Both databases will require login credentials to access the information. These databases offer an accessible and free way for students and alumni to connect in each respective group. These connections can help both students and alumni with career/professional development and opportunities.

International Bridges to Justice App

We live in an unfair world. The legal system in most developing countries can only be described as inequitable. Most people in the developing world do not know their legal rights, and they live in a system that rewards the rich in the detriment of the poor. This stems from the fact that good lawyers are too expensive, thus people who are in the lower socioeconomic strata do not have adequate representation in court.

Change++ along with International Bridges to Justice are working on one solution: develop an app that pairs lawyers to customers in developing countries, which will create a standard for criminal defense worldwide. This app will ensure that even those who do not have the means to hire a good representation in court will have one. We recognize that some events are unexpected, thus family members will be able to contact lawyers through a hotline. This hotline will pinpoint lawyers depending on location and availability, and will sent the paired lawyers information about the case.

We will be using big data within the app by collecting information about the justice index in each locality, and then displaying it in a heat map. This map will feature the areas that are currently underfunded, and thus will help donors do more impactful donations.

Change++ is excited to be working with International Bridges to Justice in an app that will revitalize a lost sense of justice, and we are looking forward to work alongside prominent organizations in this and future projects.

Fathom – Change Agents

Fathom envisions a world where young people are prepared to become the architects of their destiny and leaders for social change in the connected age. However, young people often lack the agency and access to opportunities, resources and networks needed to make this transformation. They have developed Change Agents, which is a curriculum that blends itself perfectly into the 21st century in order to solve these problems. Change++ is working with Fathom to create a website that instructors and students can use to access Change Agents, engage with certain modules, videos, presentations, and activities, all while tracking their progress through the curriculum.

Multicultural Leadership Council

Change++ is working with the Multicultural Leadership Council on updating its website to improve the user experience and help each organization involved with planning and promoting events.
