The New Orleans Children and Youth Planning Board (CYPB) is made up of 11 to 25 members with a Youth Advisory Board of 15 to 25 members and other staff. Its mission is to encourage collaborative efforts among local stakeholders for (1) assessing the needs of children, youth, and families in their communities, and (2) assisting the development of comprehensive plans to address these needs. From 2015 to 2017, CYPB needed administrative support for completing their key activities in reaching its mission goals.
Converge provided transition staffing support to the CYPB as its Executive Director works to implement a sustainable staffing model for the CYPB. More specifically, we provided administrative support for meetings and communications of the Board and Executive Committee. We developed a report on the Board’s development and narrative grant report. Converge also provided technical assistance on an as needed basis to the Executive Director to support her in understanding the landscape and history of the CYPB.
