Case Based: Café Momentum and Assessment 

For this assignment, you will be using Café Momentum to understand some of the basics of data assessment. Later in the course you will apply these concepts to your own Community Need Project. A significant part of this assignment is using the Café Momentum information as a “case” study; this case study allows us to apply real life situations to our learning. 

You will be writing a 2-3-page paper (double-spaced, 12 point) answering the following questions. Each of these questions appear in bold and are followed with additional clarifying information. If you have question about any part of this assignment, please send me an email or post your question to the General Discussion board. 

1) What is data assessment? 

For this section of the paper, you can use course materials as well as outside research. Be certain to cite your resources in APA format.

(Recommended Length: 1 paragraph)

2) Novogratz describes two different types of philanthropic aid. One type of aid makes the donor feel good while the other form of aid has a sustainable impact that provides the receiver with a sense of dignity and independence. How does data assessment foster impactful philanthropy rather feel good philanthropy? Examples for the book will strengthen your argument.

(Recommended Length: 1 paragraph)

What this question is getting at is how organizations can use data to help them know if they are truly having a positive impact. Just because I feel that I am making a difference, it does not mean that I am making a difference. 

3) Based on the Café Momentum information provided to you, what are two goals for Café Momentum? Imagine you are Chef Houser when you are designing your goals. Why is the goal important to measuring Café Momentum’s impact?

There are a bunch for goals that one can reasonably develop based on the Café Momentum information, so don’t get hung up on looking for the “right” two goals.  

Example of a Goal for Café Momentum: Graduates of the Program will have a recidivism rate of less than 15% during the five years after graduating from the Café Momentum Program.

This goal is specific and measurable as well as meaningful. Chef Houser and his team can measure how many graduates stay out of the prison system over five years. This connects to their overall goal of providing young men and women with employment skills and support to avoid further incarceration. 

(Recommended Length: 1 paragraph for each goal)

4) Based on each of the two goals that you created in question # 3,  A) what type of data would you collect and  B) how would you use data to determine if you are meeting that goal? 

This connects back to your work on understanding data assessment and Novogratz’s emphasis on applying assessment to charitable work. 

Example: Data could be collected from the Texas Justice System at one-year intervals to determine the number of graduates that were reincarcerated. This information would help Chef Houser and his team understand if the program was meeting its overall mission and if not, that analysis was needed to determine ways the program could be enhanced. For example, case management services and a stipend could be extended to graduates for a two-year period following graduation to provide additional support during the critical period while they acquire job skills and a consistent work history.

(Recommended Length: 1 paragraph for each goal)
