Center for Collaborative Solutions


Our team provides consultations and trouble-shooting services in all aspects of afterschool program development, from start-up through sustainability. We can help you position your program as the go-to place in your community and help you overcome serious challenges such as low student attendance, poor staff performance or looming financial crises. Consultations range from one to four days. Examples of the impact of our work include:

  • Saving a large, urban school district $700,000 in state and federal afterschool funding losses by reviewing and restructuring attendance accounting and management practices.
  • Writing executive summaries and progress reports that paved the way for securing $100,000 in local public and private financial investments in a suburban program.
  • Integrating Title 1 Supplemental Funding into several programs while maintaining a healthy balance between academics and youth development.
