Stand Up for Our Children is an initiative of the Greater New Orleans Foundation (GNOF) to foster civic participation and empower parents and families to improve the quality of life for the region's most vulnerable children. The initiative was made possible through a $1.5 million grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. A fundamental belief of both foundations is that solutions to community problems emanate from local citizens working individually and collectively toward the common good and that people have the inherent capacity to solve their own problems. In that spirit, the Stand Up for Our Children initiative focused on three key outcomes: increasing parent engagement in advocating for vulnerable children 0-5 years old, strengthening nonprofits through organizational capacity building and fostering collaboration among participating organizations.
The initiative's Year One evaluation sought to learn about changes in participants' awareness, knowledge and acquisition of skills. The Year Two evaluation looks at how participants began to apply these knowledge and skills and take action as individuals, organizations and networks. This evaluation considered the Stand Up initiative's activities and impact from September 2013 to August 2014.
