Progressive Alliance & Coalition Building

2012

There are over 120 service organizations on the UC Berkeley Campus fueled by a commitment to serve the campus and surrounding community. In order to secure resources and improve services and capacity, Zoe is working with these organizations through a series of workshops to develop strategic plans and impact metrics for their work. Based on a needs assessment, Zoe’s team will develop a curriculum that will include topics such as theory of change, knowledge management and succession planning, internal development, data gathering best practices and identifying social impact metrics. In addition to preparing organizations to positively serve the community, Zoe’s Blueprint will also create solidarity among service organizations through providing a space to discuss shared best practices and lessons learned.

Civic Engagement

2012

Tim is working to inspire more talented college students, especially at Stanford University, to engage in public service and to join a social change movement to tackle any issue (environment, health, education, immigration, LGBT rights, etc.) that is meaningful to them in their community. Partnering with the Haas Center for Public Service, as well as other student public servants on campus, he is developing a video & interview series about leading public servants on campus, such that these students can reflect, market, and inspire other students through their stories. His vision is to empower Stanford students to reflect on, share about, and engage in public service to meaningfully create change in communities. His goal is to use video storytelling/interviewing to inspire students who have not traditionally been engaged in social justice initiatives.

Healthcare

2012

Tehani’s Blueprint seeks to address the unmet mental health needs of students and the lack of alternative options available on campus. Last year the university had five suicides on campus, which is extremely high and shows that the university needs to look at different options of getting students to cope with the various stressors that come along with college. Tehani recognizes the stigma around seeking mental health services that often keep students from pursuing help, and she is working to bridge some of these gaps between students and resources so that students secure the support they need to lead healthy, productive academic and personal lives.
