Description

My initial proposal was to engage these three, culturally diverse churches and build collective impact on a specific neighborhood. One of the churches in a CaN Center. This is a church sponsored after school program in collaboration with Salem Leadership Foundation. I did approach each of the nonprofits with my ideas of intentionally engaging this particular neighborhood’s families through community based events. Each church is supportive and willing to meet for a combined potluck. When I began my project, I first consulted with my advisor and strategically began with a system in mind to really evaluate all participant’s learning. My shortsightedness is that my measurement tool is centered around actually getting the three, non-profit congregations together for a pot-luck. This gathering is scheduled to happen on June 11th, 2017.
