Blueprints, a SkillShare program participant, serves as the catalyst to mobilize the resources of the entire community to enable families and individuals to attain the skills, knowledge, motivations, and opportunities to become self-sufficient. As an organization they are proud to change people’s lives, embody the spirit of hope, improve communities, and make America a better place to live. Blueprints has partnered with CCCE for the past two years with teams of skilled consulting partners from local businesses to strengthen their operations.
They’ve been able to improve the management of their annual employee evaluation through use of an electronic performance tool through a previous SkillShare initiative. They also hope this year to develop a financial management report in the form of a dashboard that is visually appealing and informative for board members that would better support decision-making for their programming. The report would be designed to track key indicators and benchmarks related to success in operating an early childhood program.
Blueprints launched their new project in the spring but put progress on hold once the pandemic hit. They are excited to announce, however, that they’ve been able to continue their work with their team and the help of their ESC volunteer project advisor this summer. Program Director Brenda Fronzaglio said,
“We are getting back on track with our SkillShare project and started meeting virtually. We appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the program! We are looking forward to having a better way to communicate data and monitor progress.”
