Evaluation Approach
The program is thoroughly evaluated, both internally by Kellogg faculty, and externally by an independent evaluator who has already been engaged by the BMI.
The purpose of the parallel evaluations is to maximize the impact on the cohort and to further refine the program for future participants in order to facilitate much more ambitious sector-wide goals.
Peer Mentoring *
In addition to access to the tremendous faculty of Kellogg's Center for Nonprofit Management, as well as expert practitioners in the Jewish nonprofit sector, each participant will have the opportunity to be matched with a peer mentor, strategically selected, according to the participants' self-assessed needs and interests.

Access to this unique mentor network is an amazing opportunity to help participants continue to navigate the sector, connect with mentors with a wide range of professional and nonprofit expertise, and grow as volunteer leaders even after they get their certificate!

* - The Peer Mentorship component for the National Cohort will be finalized based on the outcome of the ongoing evaluation.
