Successful Learning Collaboratives Continue

Learning Collaboratives have been an effective tool for our grantees. They begin with a presentation on a subject of interest to grantees that is followed by small breakout sessions that allow grantees to connect, share their experiences and problem-solve together. In January and March, the Community Care Corps team coordinated two successful learning collaboratives! In January, Elizabeth Pawloski from Oasis Institute joined grantees to discuss volunteer recruitment and retention ideas, the dynamic approach needed to adjust to the pandemic environment, and tailored engagement to specific groups such as men, college students and older adults. The Altarum Institute led a discussion in March focused on the value and impact of evaluation and shared tips and strategies for making evaluation manageable and meaningful.

The Gift of Experience vs. The Stress of Isolation

The Kaiser Health Foundation recently hosted a webinar panel of diverse older adults from across the country who spoke about their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many reflected on the isolation and loneliness borne out of pandemic risk and restrictions but also offered feelings of hope and resilience as they found support in their spouses, housemates and communities.
