Our Youth Collective Impact project is working to create a community culture that embraces learning and personal development that enables everyone to reach his or her potential.  Sally Fazal is our coach through Youth CI (a project of the Laidlaw Foundation and the J.W. McConnell Foundation’s Innoweave program).  Sally helped our group clarify collective impact concepts and she shared examples from other projects that helped us scope the work we needed to do.   Based on her considerable experience coaching other collectives, she made some referrals that have been extremely valuable to our collective. Sally was always available to consult with us and questions and concerns, and actively assisted in development of workshops for community participants.  Sally provided a solid sounding board and helpful guidance for us in developing our successful launch grant application.
