Project Details

What We Need
  • Expert third party advice on process or managerial changes, geographic or programmatic expansion, potential pivots, or general strategic planning
  • Facilitation of an intensive, one-day strategic planning session with staff and/or Board
  • Note: If necessary, a follow-up strategic planning session may be scheduled
Additional Details

We are piloting a project to create a space for dialogue between refugees of the Tucson, AZ area and the local police department. We hope to eventually include representatives from the school system and child protective services in this project. We are looking for support and training in how to organize and facilitate dialogue sessions and mediate conflict in a healthy way. Thank you.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a dedicated staff member working on this project, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a preliminary design and prospective participants, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,465 , allowing us to to increase our presence in the refugee community by helping us to fund new programming and activities for youth and adults alike.

Owl and Panther's main goal is healing trauma in the community through outreach activities. This project completely falls within the bounds of this goal, since it will allow for refugee parents to express their thoughts/feelings and work through trauma with those who may have caused trauma in the past and/or may unknowingly cause trauma in the future due to misunderstandings. In the past, O&P has primarily focused on refugee youth, this project will bring healing to refugee adults as well.
