We are happy to announce another of our UNCA Promise Neighborhoods Planning Call Series (that link will take you to the others).
- What: Data, Data Management, and Promise Neighborhoods
- Who: Adrian Bordone, Co-Founder/VP, Social Solutions
- When: Thursday, May 27, 3:00-4:30 P.M. EDT
- Materials: For the recording, PowerPoint, and other materials, see below.
Program Description: To receive a Promise Neighborhood planning grant the applicant must describe how they will use data to bind and direct/inform a community collaborative, manage program implementation, inform decision-making, engage stakeholders, and measure success.
Do you have a plan for using data to manage and report on your organization’s performance? Have you given thought to how you will collect key data elements across a “conveyor belt” of services to manage the performance of an entire neighborhood? Do you know what data elements you should be collecting? How will you get this data?
How will you analyze and then use this data to continuously improve? Careful consideration of these and other related questions are not just essential to receiving a Promise Neighborhood grant but also to running an effective promise neighborhood.
This planning call will leverage the experience Social Solutions has acquired through their work with Harlem Children’s Zone® and other similar projects. The call will provide insight into what seems to work, pitfalls you should be aware of, and offer practical suggestions for managing the performance of an entire neighborhood of services.
