2020 Pre-Conference Workshop

Pre-Conference: Sunday, January 26, 2020
8:00 am- 12:30 pm
William Penn Charter School
Philadelphia, PA

Workshop: How do we know? Various ways to collect data, measure value, and assess the impact of your community engagement and partnership programs.



We all assume the value of partnership and community engagement programs.  We predict the impact that they have on our students, our community and the community at large.  But how do we really know our IMPACT? How are we involving our community partners in establishing our program goals, are we improving our students' skills and competencies, and are our partnerships creating authentic relationships that have a sustainable impact on our communities?  Join NNSP as we convene schools from across the country who are invested in taking different approaches to measuring the impact of their programs.  We will share program visions, discuss student outcomes we track, review how we collect data and use this information to drive our programming.  This 4.5-hour workshop will not only expose you to a variety of measurement tools but provide you the time and space to reflect on your own programming and develop your own plans and programs aligned to this work.  There is an imminent need to track the value of this work and we look forward to coming together to share ideas and provide feedback and support to one another.
