Areas We Work In
School Readiness programs aim to improve child outcomes by providing pre-k children with key resources in literacy or math and science that will better prepare them for success in Kindergarten and beyond.
Arts education programs aim to use different art forms, such as music, fine arts and others, in the classroom to improve student outcomes and help teachers increase students’ engagements.
K12 education programs seek to improve students’ learning through a wide variety of interventions, including academic assistance beyond the bell, engagement in Science, Math, Engineering and Technology programs, and interventions design to target early literacy.
Professional development (PD) and training can be conducted across a wide variety of formats, such as face-to-face, online or blended models. In addition, PD can be delivered just-in-time, or rolled out as part of a long-term strategy. For more info download our Evaluation and Training Institute Training Brochure.
Social and health services seek to improve the health and well being of people from birth through adulthood. Social programs can focus on prevention of developmentally disruptive behaviors such as drug addiction, gang involvement and bolster resiliency in at-risk populations.
Environmental education programs seek to use core environmental principles and concepts, such as water cycles, human-environment interactions, and others, to engage students in discovery learning through the natural environment.
The central goal of evaluation planning is to clarify program objectives and link them to measurable outcomes. There are several tools and techniques useful during the planning stage, including logic models, theories of change and organizational review (among others).
Informal education turns teaching and learning upside-down, where students guide their own discoveries and learn through observation and interaction in different settings, such as museums, science centers and others.
