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 would like to schedule a half day off-site with our management team of 8 to build skills around communication, working together respectfully, and morale. We need help with planning and follow up, and would also like the Catchafire volunteer to facilitate the meeting itself in person in Marin or Sonoma County in mid-February 2022.

What We Have In Place
  • The volunteer will work directly with our CEO to plan the session to achieve our desired outcomes.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,465 , allowing us to reinvest those savings into the young people and communities we serve.

We have a management group from a variety of backgrounds with different experience levels that work on separate responsibilities in multiple locations and need support gaining skills to work together toward our common goals.
