Center for Collaborative Solutions


Afterschool programs consistently tell us that they’ve achieved their goals much more quickly with the support of our team of highly qualified coaches and mentors that would have otherwise been possible. Our packages range from five days to eighteen months and are specifically designed to meet your program’s interests and needs. Our approach includes a combination of on-site support and telephone and e-mail communication. Examples of the impact of our work in this area include:

  • Supporting the design, implementation and integration of organizational, educational and youth development practices that have resulted in afterschool programs moving from promising to exemplary levels.
  • Doubling the site staff retention rate in a suburban afterschool program by strengthening the leadership and coaching skills of the Program and Staff Development Directors.
  • Creating and implementing a plan to secure balanced, diversified and sustainable funding in a county-wide afterschool program that has now become a model for rural programs throughout the nation.
  • Measurably improving student academic achievement in several programs by hiring academic coaches, establishing a classroom connections process, creating a system of ongoing staff support and managing results.
