See how Jennifer's skills helped Boys & Girls Clubs of Tucson on an Online Research project.

What did Kristyn need?
Dollars are finite, and more than ever before, applying for grants has become incredibly competitive. Our grants manager is a part-time staff member with a limited amount of time/resources to dedicate to research, writing, reporting, etc. By helping us to conduct our research and craft the most compelling grants proposals, you'll be helping us to secure additional funding for 10,000+ at-risk kids in Tucson and Southern Arizona.

What did Jennifer have to offer?
I was born, raised and educated in Phoenix (now living in Texas) and my non-profit career started as the Art Room instructor with the Boys and Girls Club in Chandler AZ. It was a part-time college position and while I wasn't on track for a non-profit career, the work and kids guided me otherwise. My experience helped me graduate into a Mesa AZ non-profit working with kids through art therapy and thus my trajectory was set in public service, now a 20-year career. So in a sense, I am a B&GC alumna. Online research may sound easy but requires validation of relevancy, accuracy, quality, and sourcing, particularly when it's used to create/update or advocate for programs, seek funding and especially building community trust. I'm currently designing a program for new data science and literacy non-profit requiring research to support the evidence-based program design and curriculum. Significant time has been invested in sourcing quality resources, peer reviews, similar programs, and developing a reference list (for future use) in order to make qualified assumptions that support program design, evaluation plan, and pilot model that funders and partners will invest.
