Goal 3: Capacity Building and Leverage
Definition of Key Terms
Staff: Paid or unpaid employees of the CNCS-supported organization. National Service Participants are NOT considered staff members of the CNCS-supported organization.
Community Volunteer: Citizens or residents in the community who are recruited and/or managed by the CNCS-supported organization or assigned national service participant(s) to offer time, knowledge, skills, and expertise for free to support the CNCS-supported program or organization. Community volunteers differ from national service participants in that they are under no formal obligation to provide a specified amount of assistance (e.g., as measured by service hours), and said volunteers are not enrolled in a national service program. Also referred to as ―leveraged volunteers.
Training: An organized activity aimed at imparting information and/or instructions to improve the training recipient's performance or to help him or her attain a required level of knowledge or skill.
How to Calculate Measure/Collect Data
Count the number of individual staff members who received training that was developed, organized or delivered by the CNCS-supported organization or national service participant. The training received should be intended to support or enhance the program delivery model. Count each staff member once, even if they receive multiple types of training.
At the outset of the activity, the applicant/grantee should indicate the minimum amount of days, hours, or other units of service required to complete the activity and/or achieve results. When reporting on this performance measure, the grantee should only count the number of service beneficiaries who met or received that minimum by the end of the year.
