• COOP serves as connective tissue between urban public universities and local technology employers looking for motivated, diverse and prepared entry-level talent. More importantly, though, COOP connects underrepresented college grads to each other, within tight-knit cohorts and across "generations" of cohorts.
     
  • Arbor Brothers is partnering with the COOP management team on a number of key deliverables, including:

     

    • Theory of Change — clarifying the population served, scope of intervention, progress milestones and target long-term outcomes
    • Financial Model — to monitor fundraising progress, create multiyear budget projections, and track key programmatic outcomes
    • Earned Income Strategy — articulating and monetizing the value provided to colleges, participants and employers in order to defray the cost of the program
    • Performance Management System – establishing roles, goals, and accountability targets for staff
