GIC‘s most recent summit, Serving With Purpose, brought Delores Morton from Points of Light and Sasha Tuzel from Mission Measurement in conversation with local service providers, researchers, funders, and community members to discuss how we can work together to ensure the effectiveness and reach of service learning programs for opportunity youth. We were pleased to have a full house in our conference space at The Chicago Community Trust.
Participants expressed strong interest in working with GIC and Mission Measurement to produce an evaluation toolkit, echoing remarks by Tom Wilson, Get IN Chicago Board Co-Chair and CEO of Allstate. “We have learned that accountability and measurement is hard, but necessary,” said Wilson. “So be bold in your thinking today. Be open to measurement even if you can't control all of the variables.”
