MOBILIZE COMMUNITIES, PARTNERS & SYSTEMS
We support implementation of the five conditions that together lead to powerful results: a common agenda, shared measurement systems, mutually reinforcing activities, continuous communication, and backbone support organizations. We act as your backbone support and facilitate group discussions to move your mission forward. We assist with identifying key stakeholders to engage to work on identifying the issue, building community will and buy in from the key stakeholders, and reaching consensus on the action plan.
Does your community based organizations or school want to build partnerships to improve outcomes with children and families?? We have experience in working with all sectors from Pre-K, K-12, Higher Ed and Adult Ed. We help schools diversify and increase their funding by applying for public and private grants. We assist with strengthening school-community-family partnerships to improve student achievement. We help schools visualize their data in user-friendly reports and dashboard and also train staff on how to make meaning with their data. We facilitate feedback from key stakeholders by conducting surveys, interviews and focus groups with staff, parents, students and community partners. We conduct feasibility studies, identify grant opportunities, gather and analyze student and community data, facilitate stakeholder feedback, support implementation of new projects and more.
We have experience of working both with government agencies at the local and state level as well as private sector organizations. We bring this knowledge and experience to facilitate advisory committees and task forces with public-private sector representation. We assist the committee with completing a needs assessment, develop a plan and structure for the committee, and staff the committee’s work.
