How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

We have been able to start teaching children below the stated in our objective.

Since music and performing arts is our primary focus, getting children in Middle Schools to begin embracing music when they have so many other activities vying for their attention is key to them jumping into it at the High School level.

Having the ability to raise our fundraising to add instructors has enhanced our teaching capabilities.

Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    To grow the membership to over 50 active marching members, including an emphasis on accessing high school students
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    Affiliate with other organizations that can provide additional exposure and access to a larger geographical area.

    We have reached into Middle Schools to entice children to look at learning music as a life long benefit.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    We have a very experienced instructional staff, all of whom have participated and/or taught other Drum & Bugle Corps.

    One of our Instructors just achieved his Doctorate in Education.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    We will track the effectiveness of new partnerships in providing the tactical approaches that will help us reach our goals.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    This is a new initiative that we start in 2014 and have a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with an organization very capable of helping us achieve our goals and are preparing a proposal to extend the partnership, using the existing MOU as a starting point.

    We have new students in Middle School which is a sign of our progress.
