Use an online graphic design program to create a logo.
Ideally each member will work at his or her own computer for this project. Vectr is a free graphic design software that can be used online or downloaded to a computer or mobile device. If your Club has low bandwidth, download the program to Club computers prior to this activity. To download the Vectr app on Club devices (or to encourage members to download Vectr on their own devices) visit this link: https://vectr.com/downloads/
Start off with a community builder from the YD Toolbox app!
To check in with your members, ask a question like: What logo do you think you see the most times in a normal day?

Design a logo
Return to your computer. Open Vectr. Click on the “Use Online” button. Begin designing your logo in a new file. Use the skills you learned while completing the interactive lessons. If you need a refresher, you can access the lessons or tutorials by clicking on the “help” button (an “i” inside a circle) at the upper-right corner of the page.
When you are happy with your design, export it by clicking on the icon with a rectangle and an arrow pointing up; it is in the upper-right corner. You must change the file type to from svg to png using the drop-down menu on right side of the screen. Then click “Download.”
