Sam Piha, a veteran of the afterschool field and founder of Temescal Associates, recently developed a paper on the role of intermediary organizations, which often provide backbone supports in collective impact efforts. For that paper he interviewed Karen Pittman, CEO of the Forum for Youth Investment, about the important role that intermediaries play in collective impact work. They think it’s a conversation worth sharing.
