Making sure all children and youth in Rochester can enroll in fun, engaging and high-quality afterschool and summer programs is the focus of a community-wide effort that CGR is helping the Greater Rochester Afterschool and Summer Alliance to lead. CGR is working with GRASA to find out what parents and youth want to see in afterschool and summer programs. How do families know what’s available? Are youth able to enroll in programs that interest them? Are cost or transportation barriers to access? If you work with families, please share our survey link. Their input will be used to build a coordinated and equitable system for out-of-school time programs for all youth in our community.
CGR refreshed our strategic framework in 2020-21 to explore ways to sharpen our focus and increase our impact. With the help of our consultant, Suzanne Piotrowski of Badfish Consulting, we talked with clients and community members to gain outside perspective and then worked with our board to deeply understand and define our values, purpose, and value proposition to clients and communities.
CGR is a nonprofit that relies on donations to help make us stronger, more nimble, and ever-growing in our capacity to serve our community. Learn more about how to support CGR’s high-quality research, analysis, data insights and collaboration.
