An early-stage nonprofit that provides elite-level summer sports camps to low-income youth needed direction and facilitation assistance in designing a five year strategic plan to realize their growth ambitions.
The nonprofit believes every child should have the opportunity to be an elite athlete on and off the court. They do this by providing free sports and educational based programs to minority and under-resourced communities. The nonprofit’s small full-time staff and board had successfully grown their programs and procured grant funding and the leadership team wanted to build on their past successes. They had a few ideas surrounding their future direction but needed help connecting these ideas together to scale their services and grow the organization.
Pepper Foster led the nonprofit’s leadership team through a series of workshops, starting with a strategy brainstorm and ending with an execution plan:
Pepper Foster and the nonprofit’s leadership team identified strategies to meet the organization's five year goals. Strategic objectives were identified and the work to achieve these objectives was broken into manageable pieces. Additionally, Pepper Foster put together a timeline and milestones into a project planning tool so the nonprofit could track their progress.
A month after implementation, the nonprofit was successfully using the project management tool to execute on their goals and objectives. Pepper Foster looks forward to watching the organization scale its services in the Portland area and possibly beyond!
