"The Success for Geneva's Children Data Report has
already helped bring several million dollars into Geneva by
supporting numerous organizations in grant applications. I
want to enable organizations to continue using the Data
Report in this way, and I hope that with improvements
Christina and I make, the report will be even more useful."

What are your goals for the project? What do you hope to accomplish?
What have you personally learned so far? How has this project affected you?
Calling up complete strangers isn't the easiest thing to do, especially for a large project like the Success for Geneva's Children 2009 Data Booklet. The responsibilities involved in completing this project requires a lot of organization. And for all of their hard work, Kinnevey and Daley are rewarded with newly acquired skills and personal satisfaction.
"I have gained a better sense of how to interact with community members. Also, I'm more aware of the kind of programs that are out there [in the community], the different needs that they have, and what's currently being done about them. I'm excited to see the final project, to see the new trends - how things changed and why." - Christina Kinnevey
"I am pleased with the opportunity to learn more about the services available to the Geneva community. Working on the Data Report allows me to see Geneva from more angles than ever before, and because of that I am reminded that there is always more than meets the eye. Regardless of the field one works in, it is an important lesson not to prejudge and to always be willing to look deeper and consider new information." - Emma Daley
