Hello! My name is Amanda Winters and I work with the Illinois Board of Higher Education. We are getting ready to launch some regional work to more fully connect education and workforce pipelines. We are planning on utilizing elements of collective impact within our approach. I am very interested to see if you have a list of speakers that we could draw from to support our efforts. Folks who have done this work in diverse communities and can help our partners with some nitty gritty assessment and planning. We have some limited funds to support technical assistance, so we would really like to hone in on some targeted expertise. Just let me know and thanks!

Greetings,

Paul said this would be a good place to submit my question for an Advisor to answer: I am the new Project Evaluation Associate at CHASS Center in Detroit, MI. I saw information on your toolbox when searching for more information on group facilitation. I was wondering if you have any cost/benefit analysis information available that I would be able to give my supervisor and our executive board meetings here at CHASS?

Hello Advisor,
My name is Frank Wieman and I live in Lorain, Ohio.
I am in the process of starting a non profit foundation with as main objective "share the power of sports for underprivileged children!". Because I believe sport can help children to improve themselves both physical as mental. They can learn life long skills. That's why I am very enthusiastic about this. I am new to the non profit sector and encountered the Community Toolbox. This looks very sophisticated and well maintained! At the other hand I have difficulties about where to start, it looks overwhelming to me. Here does my question appear.
Please can you tell me how I can use the Community Toolbox or where to start? Do I need everything? If not, what do I need? If you would like to have an idea what our foundation is about please visit www.spsuc.org .
Thank you very much for your time!

I was wondering the steps process in changing one of my classes? Dom, 07/17/2016
Hi,
My name is Maria, and I work for a national general contractor as a project manager. My husband also works for the same general contractor as a union carpenter. My husband suffers from addiction and we have found the work environment to be very dangerous for him. It also seems to be recognized nationally that many people who work in the construction industry, from workers to management, suffer from addiction. However with this knowledge I have not been able to find resources at the Union in which my husband is a member that help support his recovery during his return to work, and I know no resources are offered from the employers. How can I help those that I work with in their recovery journey? How can we get information to those suffering that help is available? What resources and information is available that I can bring to either my employer or the Unions to help initiate programs to help their employees and members?

What happens to data once it is analyzed Evaluating the Initiative Vie, 07/15/2016
Hello,
I run a non-profit in Nepal that provides educational and social services to orphans in Nepal through an after-school program. In addition to academic support, we do health checkups and nutrition, mental health therapy, etc. I’m currently searching for a database that we can track our program and evaluation outcomes. Something that would help me see their grades, health records, behavioral evaluations over time, etc. I’m having a hard time finding something that would cover all the bases, so I can see a snapshot of each child but also how our program is doing over time (e.g. an entire class’ grades over the year, behavioral changes over time, etc.). Do any of you know of any kind of software that might work for this? Right now I’ve got everything in spreadsheets and I’m realizing quickly, that it’s not a good long-term solution.
Thank you so much for your help,
Jehan

Hi

I'm interested in making this my career--to create shared value by using the community toolbox to decide on a community solution and then apply it through a community partnership or buying a small business and applying that solution strategy to the current business strategy.

creating shared value
http://www.isc.hbs.edu/creating-shared-value/Pages/default.aspx

How do you recommend that I get started? Do you have suggestions for the ideal outcome or plan? I'm thinking it may be best to pick a community to start in and then find the problem and then find a business that would be a good fit to apply it.

Thanks,

Matt

Our NAMI Northeast Kansas/Leavenworth group is a 501c3 corporation. We are currently going through our re-Affiliation process with both our state and national NAMI organizations. We are required to have our by-laws reviewed by an attorney or legal representative before we can complete our process. Is there any organization that could do this for a minimal charge? We are 100% based upon donations, and do not have funding to support this effort. I will be donating the funds needed to accomplish this, if the amount is small enough. Thank you,

Our Head Start program has to update our community needs assessment once every 3 years. The person that previously did our 12 county area has decided not to continue. Do you know of agencies who assist with that kind of project?
Thanks. Steph
