MOSAIC is a non-profit whose main goal is to foster an ethos of volunteerism and provide opportunities for Southern Alberta youth to obtain organizational leadership and training and experience through volunteerism. We met MOSAIC through Dr. Abdul Rahman, a Canadian-Pakistani Psychiatrist working for the Calgary Health Region who helped create MOSAIC to help Alberta Muslims better integrate with Canadian society and gain a better sense of self through volunteerism.
Mosaic hired us to design a brand new web portal based on Drupal and CiviCRM. We not only created an awesome website but through a bit of custom programming provided an excellent UX for them.
The site serves as a volunteer management system which allows volunteers to sign up for an event that they might be interested in volunteering in. There is also a membership system powered by CiviCRM, with an eCommerce component which allows members to pay their dues using PayPal. Organizations interested in requesting volunteers are also asked to pay an organizational membership which is payable through PayPal.
We did a number of videos initially using a prototype website to explain the functionality of the system to MOSAIC executive. You may check out the videos on our Youtube page.
