CHICAGO, Sept. 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2011, André Hughes retired from his role as a Global Managing Partner at Accenture, but his post-retirement plans did not include taking it easy. Instead, he began the process of bringing an inspired vision to life—a vision that will provide anyone access to the help they need by virtually connecting them to proven nonprofit programs and services.
Today, PbA is launching its 2.0 app suite to further amplify the efforts of nonprofits, activists and people with know-how by demolishing barriers between them and the people they want to help. "Our platform empowers organizations to extend reach and scale impact by virtualizing the delivery of their proven programs and services. People with knowledge and innovative ideas are already out there—they simply need help helping even more people. That's where we come in, our expertise powers theirs."—André Hughes
The PbA for schools program was recently launched in collaboration with several school districts in Chicago's south suburbs. The program uses the Powered by Action technology platform and parents' curriculum to inform parents and provide them access to resources that increase student success. "We can now connect parents by grade-level to the appropriate experts, best practices and solutions that help them help their students and doing it virtually accommodates busy schedules." —Dr. Donna Leak, Superintendent, Sauk Village CCSD168
YWCA Metropolitan Chicago sees Powered by Action's platform as a key component in helping them break the mold of the traditional nonprofit. "We live increasingly digital lives and need to evolve our service delivery model in order to meet people where they are. This app allows us to more deeply engage with our constituents and make our services virtual." —Dorri McWhorter, YWCA Metro Chicago CEO
With the release of the PbA 2.0 app suite, PbA intends to help other nonprofits that are already delivering proven programs but need help scaling impact.
