Over the next several weeks, I will be doing a follow up to the What It Took report and series of articles we released on Promise Neighborhoods last year (see the links below if you haven't seen them already).
The original report and articles were based on approximately 70 anonymous interviews with Promise Neighborhoods applicants, peer reviewers and other stakeholders.
The new report will take the same approach, focusing on what worked, lessons learned, significant challenges, and other advice, thoughts and feedback from those who were involved in the process.
If you and/or your team are interested in participating in an hour long anonymous interview about your experience with the Promise Neighborhoods process, please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to hearing from you!
