Building Our Future is excited to partner with Kenosha Unified School District and the African American Youth Initiative (AAYI) to host monthly Youth CommUNITY Conversations. Conversations will take place the last Wednesday of every month, 4-6 PM, through May! Join us at Herzing University to lift your voice, be heard, and create the change you want to see in the Kenosha community.
Doors open at 4; convos start at 4:30. Refreshments provided, masks required.
For more information, please contact Yolanda Jackson-Lewis at email@example.com, or Brandon Morris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Building Our Future is excited to announce the launch of our Results Count Cohort (formerly Continuous Improvement Cohort)! We invite any community partner organization in Kenosha County to consider applying. This Cohort is an excellent opportunity to zoom out on your work, get clear on your results, and receive tailored coaching to improve on your program outcomes - all in service of improving our Kenosha community.
From March to June, a team of 2-4 from your organization can join with others to build a cohort learning environment where you'll learn from each other, try out new tools, and improve your skills in evidence-based decision making. The Cohort will meet seven times between March and June. Each participant will receive a copy of the book Upstream: How to Solve Problems Before They Happen, and each team will receive two personalized coaching sessions with trained BOF facilitators. The cost to participate is $100 per organization.
Curious to learn more? Hear directly from two organizations who participated in last year's cohort--KAC and United Way--in our Together, We're Better podcast episode, "Taking the Time to Make Results Count."
We invite you to apply! Please see the flier and FAQs for more details, and fill out this application form before March 1st. Please also consider sharing this opportunity with others you know--organizations do not need to be a current partner of BOF to participate. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to Lynn Debilzen at email@example.com.
Together, we can achieve better results for our community.
