Environmental Education Better Results Toolkit

With support from the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation, LFA developed the Better Results Toolkit in partnership with a set of San Francisco Bay Area environmental education organizations that participated in a three-year capacity-building initiative called LEAPS (Leadership and Evaluation for Program Success). The toolkit guides organizations through the process of putting strong data-driven learning practices in place.

Who We Are

We partner with social sector organizations
to advance knowledge, capacity, and culture of learning
in the service of equity and justice. 

Learning for Action supports individuals and organizations working on systemic, structural, and policy changes that address the underlying root causes of inequities so that all members of our communities have access to the opportunities they deserve for productive, healthy, and meaningful lives.

What We Do

We provide consulting services to social sector organizations
so that they may effectively design, implement, assess,
and improve strategies to achieve impact.  

LFA has a rare combination of high-quality analytical skills and a deep knowledge and appreciation for the work of community-based organizations.
