“How does an innovative program innovate through change? Our program recently went through a change in leadership. We learned that by continuing to push forward with big goals, our foundation is weakening. We need to 'slow down to go fast.' We need to reinvigorate our focus on our program and then spread our message. We want to change our monthly classroom visits, improve our annual adventure course day and better communicate our accomplishments through increased social media presence. Once we reinvest in our program, we can share our mission by hosting a conference for other burgeoning mentorship programs in Alaska.”
