Requirements

Requirements

There are several requirements that must be met in order to effectively use the Destiny Search Project 2.0 system. These prerequisites can be met with a minimum amount of resources, however, the needs can expand rapidly based on the size of your search. The minimum requirements are:

  1. Search Center – A location that will serve as the base location for operations, more details will be found under the Search Center section
  2. Computer – Desktop or Laptop that can be deployed at Search Center location. Phones or Tablets may have some limited uses.
  3. Internet Connection – High Data Use
  4. Applications – Software / Online tools as listed in Computer section
  5. Printer – Paper and Ink for at least 100 pages not counting any fliers.
  6. Staff – It can be done with one person, but we recommend at least three to start, understanding that more staff will be needed as the search grows. These needs can be met using volunteers that respond to calls for assistance. More information is available in the Staff section.
  7. Searchers – A larger number of volunteers will be needed in order to conduct searches, post fliers, or go door-to-door. The amount needed will vary.

That’s it! You could run a search from start to finish with just these minimums, but we strongly recommend that you increase operational capacity based on your search requirements and the number of volunteers available. It’s important to put volunteers to work as quickly as possible. Unused volunteers who perceive they are not needed are not likely to return.
