Hi Nick,

Thank you for taking the time to send us these resources!

You make an excellent point about "scaling our impact"! We have informally discussed long term plans for scale that would include replication through partners across the country and across the world, and would be interested to learn more about the opportunities involved with open-sourcing. One concern is that we are not yet at a place where our model is codified enough for successful replication by an outside entity, but we will look forward to exploring the resources you shared.

Thank you so much for the link to Pineo's Social Impact Navigator! There are lots of great ideas in there about impact measurement. Particularly of interest to me right now is the section about developing indicators (and proxy indicators) to monitor qualitative changes. The tools and checklists presented here are definitely something that we hope to incorporate into our impact measurement. I also appreciated the data collection resources and the advice on how to tackle different challenges of results measurement. I look forward to going through this resource more closely with my colleagues to see what else we can implement.

Thank you again!

Hi Ashley,

Thank you so much! At the moment, we have not heard of any similar programs in other countries, though we know that our model has potential to be successful in other contexts. We have received requests for replication from as far away as Poland, Ireland and Kenya.

Hi Marnie,

Thank you so much! We are very proud of our mentors - just now we are busy recruiting mentors for our Class of 2018, and we are very excited!
