Chicago Mentoring Collaborative

CMC serves as a bridge to resources in Chicago’s higher education ecosystem. They provide research and toolkits to schools and community-based organizations interested in starting or enhancing their mentoring programs. They also provide professional development opportunities to help mentoring program staff enhance their skills and build program capacity. Their mission is to strengthen the network of higher education and workforce development partners helping youth transition to and thrive in college.

Results

Getting mentoring and youth development organizations to stop and take the time to think through the "how and why" they operate their programs is no easy feat. Trina helped to demystify and simplify the process by walking participants through a tool that helped them strategically look at their systems and see where changes could be 

implemented. Trina provided real world examples and scenarios, along with feedback to participants to help them formulate their plans. It was a great workshop!

We are a startup nonprofit in our second year of programming, growing in all directions. Our informal processes weren’t meeting the level of organization we needed to continue providing a high level of personal care to the growing number of clients we serve. Working with Lavender Eucalyptus, LLC has been like having a safety net helping us on all fronts. Their strategic support has consistently exceeded our expectations; we hoped for some advice on an IT platform, and they created a platform. We were looking for feedback on our marketing materials and they improved our marketing materials. Now 

we’re not just staying on top of today’s work, we have the foundation to manage the future complexity of continued growth.
