MPA students assist the Washington Service Corps
An example of MPA students at work!
Good news for the MPA program. The Marketing for the Public Service intensive that I taught last March yield great results with one of the teams’ project ideas being implemented. The ESD that manages the Washington Service Corps/AmeriCorps program had this to share:
“The Evergreen MPA students helped the Washington Service Corps team explore all the benefits they might spotlight with a fresh lens. The ideas they provided were valuable and helped them identify new strategies. We recently completed a Lean exercise to target new community partners to accommodate more service corps members. While we didn't use every single idea, the MPA students' input was invaluable! Thank you!” ~ Janelle Guthrie, Communications Director, Employment Security Department.
What a wonderful outcome and testimonial for the MPA students and program!
