It'd be awesome if the elevator pitches could be specific to the group we're in front of. For example, we pitch in front of family foundations different than we would if in front of a school board. We also would need a completely different approach while at a networking event at a after work bar versus if we were at a sit-down training event next to the CEO of Intel.
Over the previous few years, we've had several opportunities to share our story with funders, schools, parents, businesses, etc. However, we know that it isn't compelling enough to resonate with any of the groups except for those that know (intuitively) what the issues are. This project will help us to have an impactful start in dialogue when someone asks "What do you do?" or "What is The Village Method".
We currently have tons of material and words which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have brochures, videos, website and the ability to provide any other information you need.
We're a grassroots community based organization that started with 30 youth and families and now have over 100 in our program So something is going right however if we're going to attract engage and retain the folks that will donate and invest then we need your help to tighten pitch!
This project is designed to be done in less than a day. It doesn't have a predefined set of project steps.
To develop a sustainable academic pipeline for underserved (K-16) youth of African ancestry and engage families in the work of building our community.
We foster an environment of academic excellence, cultivate parent leadership, sponsor community engagement, promote healthy living and advocate for socio-economic mobility.
