Looking to sketch out an ambitious plan to bring a robust civic education program to all corners of the Commonwealth, Discovering Justice has embarked on the development of a strategic plan to guide its work over the next three years.
To help guide the Project, Discovering Justice Has hired Jackie Jenkins-Scott (Right) Founder and President of JJS Advising and Marta Rosa (Left), President of MTR Consulting Services, two nonprofits leaders from the Boston area. Over the four month process, Jenkins-Scott and Rosa will conduct a scan of the needs for civic education across the Commonwealth, assess the resources available across the sector, and work with the Board, staff, and organizational partners to develop focused strategies to bring high quality civic education to Massachusetts students. In addition, supporters and volunteers to of Discovery Justices will be surveyed to solicit their input
Through the process, the organization will discuss critical issues such as what programs should be expanded, what grades levels should be focused on, how to develop programs that discuss injustices in the system, and how to identify potential sources of revenue to fund the work.
A final report is expected after the new year and will be released to the Discovering Justice Members and the general public.
