Project Details

What We Need
  • Document outlining feedback on pitch delivery with suggested next steps and/or resources
  • A script for a 1-minute verbal pitch that communicates your Organization's mission, work, and why people should care
Additional Details

Taking the various successes of our tutoring program and presenting them as a package that would be beneficial for other school districts in the area.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have Year-end reports from previous school years, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have statistics and a database, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to continue to run programs and events within the communities that we serve.

The ability to serve more than one school district with our tutoring program not only allows us to help additional students but greatly increases the growth and success of our academic department and organization as a whole.
