Review for Diamond Educational Excellence Partnership (DEEP), San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In my 36 years of experience in the literacy and nonprofit arena, I have not come across the quality of collaboration that has been initiated, inspired, and directed by the DEEP organization and its leadership. A basic challenge in endeavors of this kind is the recruitment of partners; another is the engagement and retention of these partners for the long-term. DEEP has succeeded in both. It has put together a strong program plan and executed it. It has successfully identified outcome measures that make sense and has produced solid documentation for progress made in coordinating diverse services that contribute to the goals of enhanced youth preparation for school and performance in it. The organization's work with school principals, teachers, diverse agencies, parents, and children is strategic and well-executed. The San Diego Council on Literacy is proud of its affiliation with DEEP and is grateful for the outcomes that have come from the organization's smart application of SDCOL resources, and other community resources, towards the agency's mission and goals. The associated partners are being consistently assured that their work together is making change happen. The numbers show that DEEP' is succeeding in interrupting many years of low student achievement in the community that is being targeted by this collaborative effort. Our community can count on more exciting outcomes from this amazing organization. More people need to know what is happening. The DEEP model is a winning one, worthy of more review and adoption.
