Data Management and Support

Working with Metis Associates is truly a joy. I am continually amazed at their ability to efficiently and thoroughly sift through seemingly disparate information and data and compile it into easy-to-understand reports and visual representations.

Grant Writing

Metis is a first-rate company with highly professional staff and proven results. On our last federal grant proposal, they guided us through the process with expert advice and thoughtful insights from their years of experience, all of which helped us to develop a meaningful and impactful program and a winning proposal.

Impact Evaluation

Metis Associates has deep expertise in research and evaluation methodology as well as highly relevant knowledge of higher education. The Metis team members that my colleagues and I have worked with bring this technical expertise to the conversation in ways that make the analyses stronger, while also making them accessible to a non-technical audience. Equally important, Metis is a great partner. They are collaborative, flexible, patient, responsive, and committed to respecting their clients while remaining methodologically and ethically sound in their approach.

Program Evaluation

Metis worked diligently to understand the complex roles of stakeholders in the Staten Island criminal justice system and the broader community, as well as the service environments. Metis offered useful insights to shape modifications to the HOPE program, with an eye towards advancement and expansion of the program. We have since implemented several of their recommendations with measurable success.

Research Studies

Working with the Metis team was an absolute pleasure. Their personal touch, dedication, and commitment to conduct a thorough and well thought out evaluation helped establish a tone and sense of trust that made everyone comfortable. Our collaboration to evaluate the impact of Single Stop at Community College of Philadelphia is one of the highlights of my career!

Survey Research

Metis Associates brings not only the technical and research skills necessary to carry out a project, but equally importantly, they bring content expertise, an understanding of how public systems work, and a commitment to improving outcomes for children, youth, and families. As consultants, they take the time to understand the objectives of the project and then bring creative solutions for accomplishing it.

Educational Equity and School Integration

Our school district has had the privilege of working with Metis Associates as recipients of the MSAP grant. Their logo speaks to their work: “Partners for meaningful change.” They reflect just that! They are partners who walk alongside their clients, providing great insight and direction to ensure that the highest level of success is achieved and meaningful change occurs.

P-12 Education

As the project manager for a US Department of Education grant, I had the good fortune to work with Metis Associates. The Metis evaluation team aided us in establishing a system of data collection and self-evaluation that helps maintain standards of excellence years after their participation contractually concluded.

Youth Development

Metis has conducted evaluations of all of our signature programs. They have served as thought partners and avid listeners in understanding the big picture and the end goals. They have contributed valuable ideas and insight to our work. They have talented staff willing to go the extra mile.
