Your Story From the Field

What does your organization do exceptionally well that others can learn from?

Include examples of your work in action. Tell about a time … highlight your practices and your people.

Use facts to back up your assertions. (Your app reduced discipline incidents at school? How was this measured? Your teens experience growth in skills? How do you know?)

Share a quote or two from the people who benefit from your work. Include names, ages.

Write from the first person, like you’re having a conversation with your peers.

We would also need photos: a headshot of the author/s and at least three photos showing the organization’s work in action. Caption information should share who’s in the photos and what they are doing.

Here are examples that have already appeared:
