Meeting and Exceeding Goals!June 1, 2011 Mobius
Thanks to the hard work of the programs participating in the Amachi Grant, the report card for Mobius for year two of the grant is great! The Amachi Grant is a three-year grant focusing on providing mentors for children affected by incarceration. Six Vermont programs are part of the grant through Mobius: Everybody Wins!, the King Street Center, Spectrum, and MOVE (St. Michael’s College) in Chittenden County; Watershed Mentoring in Franklin County; and the Mentor Connector in Rutland County.
The evaluation was based on totals as of March. As you can see, the six programs working with Mobius have achieved great success in match attainment, with double the average for all programs in the grant. We are ahead of the rest of the Tier in partnerships, and we are well on the way to making goal for the year (which ends at the end of this month). And we are doing well in the employment of full-time equivalents, which is measured because the grant was made with money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
This is great news as we look toward year three of this grant, which has helped expand mentoring in three Vermont counties.
