AIR works with many agencies, strengthening their capacities to implement innovations and evidence-based practices to benefit the populations they serve.
Addressing challenges in the education, health, workforce, and social services sectors, we work with agency staff to map assets, conduct organizational readiness and needs assessments, co-interpret data for strategic planning, and identify, select, and evaluate evidence-based policies and practices that best fit the specific demographics and needs of their audiences served.
Through technology solutions, in-person and virtual professional and peer learning events, AIR provides training, technical assistance, and ongoing coaching to support agency staff throughout the change process. We monitor and track progress through our Technical Assistance Tracker to provide data on inputs, outputs, and outcomes for the purpose of continuous quality improvement, and to report progress to clients and the field.
A hallmark of AIR's ability to bridge research and practice is both the use of data for planning, monitoring, and measuring progress and the ability to guide organizations in selecting and implementing the most relevant evidence-based practices to meet their needs.
