College Bound is a non-profit organization committed to providing promising high school students from under-resourced backgrounds with the academic enrichment, social support and life skills needed to apply, matriculate and succeed in four-year colleges.
In only 19 weeks, College Bound rolled out Bridgit, an OutSystems application that enables high school counselors to gather information about students’ college plans and apply that information to prioritize their actions. Bridgit utilizes the data-proven power of checklists to help its users “perform complex tasks consistently and correctly,” thereby increasing college enrollment rates. The pilot launched this summer at seven high schools and two college access organizations. Over 40 counselors are participating in this pilot for which College Bound secured 4,000 student licenses.
