This project will save us $12,550 , allowing us to set up our goals of providing service for 60 youth for the balance of 2018 and guide our work moving forward.

What We Need

  • Analysis of the Organization’s current needs, long-term goals, programs, competitive standing and resources
  • Recommendations for an appropriate course of action to reach the desired objectives, including allocation of resources and how to measure success
  • Plan outlining the resources and steps required to reach short- and long-term goals

How This Will Help

This will help by flushing out the details of what is already in place and show where we can improve or adjust the plans. Because the implementation is key, I am hoping to be able to work with the volunteer weekly on this aspect.

What We Have In Place

We currently have an outline of the organizational plan which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have an advisory board and other volunteers available and messaging and logo being prepared and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Our Mission

Mission Statement: Is to get children and youth out of the city and into arts, science and nature. We will do this by leading weekend trips where children/youth can explore the world around them and beyond.

What We Do

We lead weekend outings for youth and children. Our goal is to foster a love for nature, arts and science that could be missed due to lack of opportunity.

From my first conversation with Deb, she was on fire. I was inspired by her fuel and was given ideas I had not thought of before. She further pushed me to go beyond what I was thinking, challenging me to ask bigger and think bigger. Overall, this was a great experience. Thank you Deb
