How does this work through the web site?
I am currently working on developing and coopting tests to set baseline attribute scores.
- Constitution (Toughness / Heart / Game)

- Charisma (Social Skills)
But more like this
Instead of data mining to sell you shit you don’t need or set you up for identity theft, these quizzes will help you get an objective look at yourself. Allowing you to see what victim profiles you may fit into, what your strengths are, and where you could use improvement.

Operational disciplines can be scary subject matter. There be dragons here.
Sadly, the people that need this most tend to be the least likely people to seek it out.
The 250 lb. former linebacker gets a kick out of learning to be Jason Bourne.
However, the 120lb sophomore co-ed is the one that is on nearly every single victim profile. She is the one that needs Bourne's skills.
How do you get her to train in scary things? To face her dragons?
"Why should I train?, men should be trained not to rape"
Establish that what we are providing is in no way blaming the victims of crime for not having this type of training or for night fighting back.

People that know the logo will know. The uninitiated will not. Also shows those in the know that there are active agents in that area. Mission capable agents (more to follow)
We can develop instructors in these areas.
The O – Team
Ideally we will be able to set something up like the TV show "Stingray"
Ray does not charge money for his help. Instead, he extracts a "favor" from his client in advance that the client will repay Ray in the future by performing this favor, perhaps easy, perhaps difficult, upon Ray’s request. This favor must be given by the client. The favor can involve the current case on which he is working, or a future case.
Sound Cool? I think so
I imagine something like this once we are up and running. One guy wants to earn xp designing an op. So he gets a flyer advertising volunteer services placed in the Sunday newsletter of a local church. Some grandma goes to a page on the site and fills out the request form. Or calls a number and someone else does the web stuff because computers might scare grandma. Either way the parameters of the mission are set, and we get to know some things about grandma. For the sake of explanation lets say she needs her lawn raked and tree removed. We also learn that she enjoys knitting and is part of a knitting circle that meets Thursdays from 3-5pm.
So guy goes to the website and sends out the Bat signal:
Need Operatives in the greater Minneapolis area for lawn care and tree removal next Thursday from 3-5. If special skills were required it could be listed as a requisite for participation. Also gives people with those skills an opportunity to earn points using them to help others.
So guy gets a crew of say 10 operatives. A couple of specialists with landscaping skills and equipment and some others that can handle a rake. They cut down the tree and clean up the yard and disappear like shadows.
Specialists earn points they can use to level up or trade to acquire new skills, say like one free class ant the next VioDy seminar.
Grandma comes home and it is a miracle, what she asked for happened.
Next week she receives a call or an email.
We require no payment. If you want to show appreciation tell others how to contact us for help. Also if you would like to help others, your knitting circle could make 30 pairs of gloves.
Guy gets points for running an op and turning an asset
Next month 30 pairs of gloves somehow show up in a warm clothing drive for the homeless.
If we do our job right only those we have helped will know we exist
We will become an urban legend
