Annemarie Grassi, PhD
Chief Executive Officer, Open Doors Academy
The social sector has historically been more heavily focused on handing out “fish”, rather than engaging in efforts that create long-term, deep impact change. Open Doors Academy, a high quality youth developmental enrichment and leadership program, utilizes a 7-year program model that seeks to create a village of fishermen. Dr. Grassi will discuss how research and performance based goals provide guidance for Open Doors Academy and implications for quality standards in youth development and leadership programming.
