Strengthening Community & Parents for Public Schools

In partnership with SVP, CPPS tackles projects like:

  • Program Evaluation: Identifying key performance indicators, building a program evaluation plan, and developing a compelling dashboard to showcase their progress with parent engagement (SVP Partners Arnaud Comet and Jenn Beyers of ORS Impact, which provided both paid and pro bono consulting)
  • Marketing and Communications: Turning powerful data into unforgettable stories that resonate with their audience and grow their programs (builds off the Program Evaluation work, so we will be looking for a volunteer later this year)
