Building Better and Sustainable Future for Our Communities

How We Measure Impact

New American Academy believes long term success requires constant innovation fueled by regular, systematic evaluation. Ultimately, our work only matters if it has a real and definable impact on entrepreneurs we work with and the neighborhoods we work in.

NAA uses a variety of tools to measure the impact of our work, including listening to, and capturing the stories of, our neighborhood partners and entrepreneurs we work with and engaging third party research to study our impact across a wide range of indicators. These different sources demonstrate NAA’s work has had deep and meaningful impact.
