Policy Analysis and Evaluation

We engage community members and partners to collect valuable perspectives on the social and educational impact of policy, identifying potential policy options that could address issues and then compare those options to choose the most effective, efficient, and feasible approach.

We design custom training curricula and increase operational capacity to develop a strong and thriving workforce.
