IP 2014 Year in Review
Impossible Possibilities (IP) completed another successful year in 2014. The organization turned seven years old on Aug. 10, 2014, matching the number of college scholarships it awarded to local high school students last year.
In 2014, IP also worked with Texas Christian University on independent projects, one of which included the conceptualization of a new "Scholarship Network" that will connect the organization's scholarship recipients with members of its Advisory Board. The network, which is currently in the research and development phase, will allow past and present students to engage local professionals on mentoring, internship and job opportunities.
In addition, as IP expands its outreach in 2015, the Board has plans to integrate a second custom platform to enhance the effectiveness of its Maven's Milestones Reading Achievement Program, the organization's largest program in terms of number of students served. The central database will streamline the data-collection process between IP and its participating schools, allowing the organization to customize reading metrics and track individual student progress for school administrators. The platform will also provide key infrastructure for future program expansion.
