Hello Everyone,

Please make sure that you're adding your impacts correctly. See instructions below:

When adding your impact, please be sure to list the name of the organization that you served at and not the name of your class. Remember to provide the name of your organization in the search tab, after clicking the add impact button, do not input any information on the groups and classes tab. Make sure that you are selecting the name of your class in the share with section.
Also, please remember that traveling via train is a cost-effective option, therefore using the apps lyft or uber are not always necessary.

--Thanks!
