Measuring Impact of National and Community Service
Jamie Haft / 01:02 PM

For those CAN readers interested in service and service-learning:

The Chronicle of Philanthropy recently reported that Patrick Corvington, the head of the Corporation for National and Community Service, is developing a five-year strategic plan to transform the agency’s approach to service to become more "results oriented." Corvington, who describes his background as “results-oriented philanthropy,” became chief executive in February, and is expanding the agency, thanks to the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, signed by President Obama almost one year ago. Corvington says, “It means ensuring our grantees are not focused on numbers, but on outcomes, that as they work with the volunteers they’re engaging, they’re always having a conversation about not what did we do, or how many, but what difference did we make.” While measuring impact can be challenging, Corvington plans to develop an approach that focuses on what works and leaves room for experimentation.
