Project Details

What We Need
  • Personalized feedback and up to 5 coaching sessions with one member of the Organization
  • Document outlining strengths, weaknesses, and suggested next steps and/or resources for the member
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have an open-minded staff who is willing to engage, learn, & grow, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have the ability to readily provide relevant supporting informati, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $8,660 , allowing us to restructure budgets to focus funds on addressing the emerging needs of our community during the unique challenges presented this year.

MCAEL's goal is to help residents achieve their full potential by improving their English language skills, and in much the same way, we can achieve this by improving our communication with stakeholders, funders, and the communities we serve. By sharpening our presentation and public speaking skills, we hope to better connect with potential partners to expand our coalition, obtain greater funding, and ultimately widen the impact of our services.
