CitySpokes enables all the segments of a city to support each other, like the spokes of a wheel. To accomplish this, there are nine different segments, or "Spokes," that each have their distinct role. The primary Spoke is a Resident, which is simply a Member of CitySpokes. If the Member of CitySpokes owns a business or runs an organization, they can add their Business as a second Spoke, and connect it to their Member account.
The same process applies if the Member also has an oversight role in Local Government, the Chamber of Commerce, or the local educational system. Regardless of the Spoke the member oversees, they can add and connect their Member account to that Spoke.
There are also two external Spokes that participate in a local community, and they are State and National level Spokes. The State level Spokes (Newscasters) contribute official information to all cities and counties within their State on such subjects as Healthcare, and National level Spokes (Bloggers) provide interesting and helpful information to one of the 32 Filter Pages that focus on specific subjects, like Fitness, Home & Building, Pets, etc.
The final Spoke is for Students, which can be any age. However, if the Student is under 18, another Member must add the Student to CitySpokes on their behalf. The primary reason for Students to join is to participate in the Prize Apps that are built into CitySpokes. Since the parent or teacher will be adding the Student, they are also the ones that will set the parameters for earning the prizes, as well as providing the prizes when the Student accomplishes their goals. Consequently, the parent or teacher needs to have access to the Student account to provide their input.
