What did Ben have to offer?
One of my goals for 2020 was to find ways to volunteer for good organizations no matter where I am -- since I do a lot of travel for work, often internationally, it's hard to volunteer in person. For this particular project, I have a lot of experience doing literature reviews. I also have spent a fair bit of time researching funders. A lot of my professional work is focused on helping social programs maximize their positive results, so the chance to help inform the design or thinking behind this after-school program is right up my alley! I am a professional researcher for education projects. I work freelance for the leading educational research institution in the UK, the National Foundation for Educational Research. For more than a decade I was a professor at Seattle University in the US, where I founded a research and teaching institute dedicated to improving educational opportunities in disadvantaged communities.
