SafeNet Consulting, a technology consulting firm based in Milwaukee, has a mantra: Listen, think and solve.
The company did exactly that when it partnered with Wauwatosa-based nonprofit organization Life Navigators in 2017.
In addition to helping out at Life Navigators, SafeNet saw an opportunity to shape tomorrow’s leaders in the technology space.
SafeNet teamed up with Elmbrook School District’s computer science program, and nine high school junior and senior students and one instructor from Brookfield Central High School joined forces to develop the Life Navigators app through a summer internship program.
The app centered on time and mileage reimbursement entries for the organization’s nurses and social workers.
In total, SafeNet contributed $168,000 in time, talent and app product to Life Navigators, while also cultivating talent and skills in the community’s next generation of leaders.
