We at Maine Outdoor School had the great privilege of working with Rich Preyer from September 2015-May 2016. Through his Master's coursework at Antioch University New England, Rich developed a pre-program evaluation plan and then helped us implement the plan--complete with a thorough report of future considerations for MOS and a concise update for us to send to all evaluation participants.
Through Rich's engagement in MOS's startup phase, we have successfully built some meaningful relationships with local schools, organizations, and other community members who will be an asset to us in the future. Because of his efforts, MOS will also be able to better address the educational hopes and goals of the residents of Downeast Maine!
