We translate knowledge and insights into organizational best practices, serving a variety of nonprofit, school, intermediary, and foundation partners.
Service Delivery Innovation
We have unique expertise in helping partners transform the way they do business to better meet youth needs and scale services. Through coaching and collaboration, we help partners package content, ready staff, and pilot innovations that lead to greater sustainability.
We tap into our rich toolbox of effective practices to help organizations strengthen their operations, implementation, and measurement. Appropriate for single organizations or groups of providers with similar challenges, our coaching employs a blend of learning strategies to go deeper on specific topics of interest.
This suite of tools and services is designed to help partners identify where to invest effort to elevate quality and improve outcomes. An initial interview with leadership complemented by quality tools, observations or site visits gives us knowledge about your desired impact and goals. After our initial assessment, we then support real-time program enhancements through a customized dashboard and follow-up coaching sessions.
Working in more than 150 communities nationwide has given us keen insights into how partners can work together across sectors to provide high-quality learning experiences for young people. We connect with your key stakeholders to document your community’s unique context and recommend structures and strategies to serve more youth in high-quality programs.
Evaluation and Assessment
SCRI offers a range of evaluation and assessment tools and templates, as well as comprehensive evaluation services. We measure academic progress, social and emotional learning, quality, and perceptions about the program across a variety of stakeholders. We act as a back-end evaluator for organizations without the capacity to do it themselves.
Our network of trainers delivers in-person and virtual learning experiences on the areas that drive quality. The spectrum of topics we address includes program administration; curriculum and instruction; culture and climate; innovation; family engagement; evaluation and assessment; and youth recruitment, attendance and retention.
