In the spring of each school year, the Neighborhood Tutoring Program staff meets as a group to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the program and to make plans for the upcoming school year. This gathering is known as SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) and it allows us to step away from phone and email for a whole work day to focus on making our programs better. We talk about issues big and small and make plans that will hopefully continue to grow and improve our programs. This year, we are asking for your input too – what do you love about NTP? What would you like to see change? What suggestions do you have for our program? If you have worked with us this year as a partner or volunteer, we want your ideas too, so you can email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you as well!
