Vice President Joe Biden says, “Thanks to the creativity and vision of these developers, young people now have a new line of defense against violence in their lives.”
With Circle of 6 you have a new way to connect with your most trusted friends- to stay close, stay safe and prevent violence before it happens! It's the mobile way to look out for your friends - on campus or when you're out for the night.
Circle of 6 lets you choose six trusted friends to add to your circle. If you get into an uncomfortable or risky situation, use Circle of 6 to automatically send your circle a pre-programmed SMS alert message, with your exact location. It’s quick. It’s discreet. Two taps on your iPhone is all it takes.
Here’s how it works:
• You're out late and you lose track of your friends. Use Circle of 6 to send your circle a “come and get me” message- with a map using GPS to show your precise location.
• You're on a date that starts to get uncomfortable. You need a polite way to excuse yourself. Use Circle of 6 to alert your circle to call you and interrupt the situation.
• You're seeing someone new, but you have some doubts about how things are going. Use Circle of 6 to access a wealth of online information about healthy relationships.
• In critical situations, use Circle of 6 to call two pre-programmed national hotlines or a local emergency number of your choice.

If you are in an abusive relationship (or suspect that you might be), please be careful of who sees you using the app or who knows it is on your device. In particular:
- Your Google Play account will keep a history of your downloads. This app will appear in that list.
- Deleting the app does not clear it from your account history automatically.
- This app has the ability to send messages and make phone calls on your behalf. Those messages and phone calls will be logged just like any message or phone call you make. These can be deleted by going through your phone icon into 'Recents' and 'Edit'.
- If you follow any of the internet links in the information section of the app, those pages will be remembered by your phone's browser history.
- There is a topic in the What To Do information section of the app that talks about phone and IT safety and how to protect yourself from the risks above. Please read and familiarise yourself with it.
Please be cautious in using this application, especially if your partner has access to or checks your phone, messages, or internet history on your desktop or mobile device.
Aurora can send quick individual or group messages to a list of your friends. The app will ask you to put a number of friends into your list the first time you open the Message feature. Choose close, trustworthy friends, who have a genuine concern for you. If possible, choose friends who live nearby and that are aware of your concerns
The SMS messages that Aurora can send are:
- to let friends know that you need someone to call you right now: perhaps as an interruption, to defuse a situation at home, or because you have a more urgent need.
Come pick me up
- for when you just need to be taken out of the situation, whatever that is. This will include your location from your phone's GPS system as a map so that your friends can check on their smartphone.
Call the police for me
- to let friends know that you need emergency help, but are not able to speak to Triple Zero 000 yourself. It's important to be sure your friend is available and is able to call for you.
- This is a message you can write yourself. There may be a message or a code that you can think of which you want to send to your circle of friends quickly.
Aurora can also make phone calls for you. It won't be able to play a message, which means you'll still have to talk or make yourself heard to the person who answers the phone, but it makes getting through to some important numbers quick and easy

Here’s how 4Bells works:
1. For the requesting group or organization
• The organization or group signs up for an account via the app, including establishing a series of criteria or categories for their volunteers.
• They instruct volunteers to download the app and connect using a specified connection code.
• Once they have connected volunteers, the organization can send out opportunity alerts for specific tasks that the volunteers can review and consider claiming by logging in to the app and viewing additional details (e.g., location, specific time requirements) added by the organization.
• Organizations can track the status of tasks (e.g., claimed, completed, returned) and resend an opportunity alert if needed.
2. For the volunteer
• Once the volunteer has been trained and accepted by the organization, they receive a connection code from the organization. At that point, the volunteer can download the app and use the code to connect to the organization.
• The volunteer signs up to receive appropriate volunteer opportunity alerts based on their skill and engagement level.
• When the organization sends an opportunity alert, the volunteer receives a push or text message that there is an opportunity to volunteer.
• They can log in to the app to view additional details and can then decline, claim, or sign-up as an alternate for the volunteer opportunity.
• When they complete the task, they can mark the opportunity as completed.
• If they are unable to complete the opportunity, they can return it and notify the organization or group that another volunteer is needed.
Range is a mobile app that locates the time and place where free meals are served this summer.
*Update 9/12/14: Range is useful during the summer months only (May-August). Data for summer 2015 will begin to be uploaded in May 2015. If you’ve used Range, please take a few moments to let us know how you used it: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/B72DGR9
During the school year, youth get daily meals at the school cafeteria, but during the summer months only 1 in 6 who eat lunch at school take advantage of free programs when school is out. Government agencies, schools, nonprofits, and community members are working hard to promote the programs that feed youth during the summer. Range is part of that effort.
If you work with youth or interact with families in need, use Range to increase visibility to the neighborhood sites that provide this crucial service. Summer meal programs provide free lunches to kids 18 and under in your community when school is out. Tell others about Range —librarians, clergy, social workers, physicians, parks and rec counselors—and how they can help families find free meals this summer.
Data from WhyHunger.org, a database of federal and grassroots nutrition programs, powers Range to locate reliable sources of healthy and free meals. We believe putting this app in the hands of many will increase the numbers of youth who are fed.
Download Range to locate the nearest sites serving free meals, and use the app to get directions, share information via text or email, and learn about key services the site offers.
