Community Culinary School of Charlotte (CCSC) needed a technology assessment and plan in order to help them prioritize their technology needs and move their organization forward. Apparo has matched them with a corporate volunteer team from Compass Group North America who addressed needed hardware, software, security and policies and provided a budget for recommendations.

This Community Impact Project is expected to help improve CCSC efficiency, by:
- Allowing CCSC team to budget for technology
