The quickest and most effective strategy to expand our reach is to work with partners already engaged in asset-based community development work. Partners are the doorway to the markets and communities for our services. We take partners through a process of discovery, planning, training, measuring and ongoing support.
Although our end-user and beneficiary is each individual community member, partners are our client, establishing a B-to-B business model.
We know that investing in local expertise is the best way to create long-term impact. We partner with organizations that have demonstrated a community-centred approach, excellent financial reporting and are committed to sustainability.
We understand that every organization and area of development is different. Therefore we customize and then integrate our model and methodology to our partner’s work. This is done by training and certifying select partner team members to become internal champions. Throughout the partnership, we resource, support, measure the impact and continuously train the partner’s Champion.
