Super excited to see some evidence of potential sustainable programs. Even as the startup time for some programs are longer than anticipated, I hope that we've laid foundation for longer-lasting partnerships.
Things appear to be heating up in terms of nonprofit partners getting ready for the new school year. I am hoping that by establishing connections and creating replicable structures that the next VISTA will be able to maintain some of these programs at the school. Very excited to see some of these partnerships come to fruition.
I am excited about some of the new programs that are on deck to start either really soon or this fall. And I'm definitely excited about this Brookings research project -- could be big.
I'm excited to start getting into the thick of it with partners and I'm looking forward to touching base with my predecessor Jake Kissling. I am very process oriented so I think I'll be taking on some extra documentation this week too.
