That was the challenge presented to us by the Noyce Foundation, a major philanthropic organization with a focus on promoting science and technology.
Over the course of nearly two years, Symphonic Strategies served as the catalyst and facilitator for a national partnership that brought together the assets and resources of The Boys & Girls Clubs of America, The YMCA of the USA, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, The National 4-H Council, and Girls Inc.
We helped the CEOs and their senior leadership teams clarify and develop a potential partnership model called Imagine Science. We teamed up with representatives from each of the participating national organizations to develop the framework for a summer-long pilot program. The program launched in the summer of 2015 in Omaha, NE; Dallas, TX; and Orange, County, CA.
