Complete the HSC GovGrader Survey

One of the recommendations put forward by HSC's A Call to Action: New York Nonprofits in the Aftermath of FEGS report was the GovGrader survey. The GovGrader is designed to capture the vendor business experience of nonprofit organizations that hold City and/or State human services contracts, offering organizations the opportunity to provide anonymous feedback and ratings on key dimensions of City and State government contract management. The goal of the survey is to create a data set and annual state-of-the-sector scorecard that will spur a public conversation about government contracting, and contract management reform and overall improvements needed in the business environment for human services in New York City and New York State. The survey will remain live until October 1, 2017.

Workshop for Educators and Staff Working with Middle School Youth

#trending is a middle school resource that is fun and engaging for youth, easy-to-use for staff, and supports literacy and SEL skills. Since its launch last year, nearly 50 community-based organizations throughout the city have started using #trending. Staff members say it prompts great discussions. Young people who participate want to read and write. And 98% of the staff who took the half-day training said that it strengthened their youth development skills. #trending is based on 36 true stories by New York City teenagers—all created in Youth Communication's in-house, rigorous teen writing program. Topics include friendship, identity, managing difficult emotions, and more.
