NYCP: Developing Community Partnerships REGISTER HERE
Tuesday, May 19, 2015 from 2:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. EDT
The goal of the webinar is to enable potential NYCP grant applicants to identify and select partners that compliment community effort to address priorities. The webinar will focus on the need for creating community partnerships that focus on identified areas (both content and geographic location). Participants will also develop an understanding of the steps to creating a successful partnership (roles of partners, and collaboration vs. cooperation) and how to finalize and sustain partnerships.
NYCP: Needs Assessment and Data Analysis REGISTER HERE
Thursday, May 21, 2015, from 2:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. EDT
The goal of this webinar is to assist potential grant applicants to identify, collect, and assess data related to their tribe’s educational needs. This includes identifying opportunities and barriers to reaching college-and-career ready youth, using data and the needs assessment to develop a project, determining feasibility to address top community needs and developing community partnership priority(s) that are addressed in the application.
