Think Tank, in cooperation with the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), has developed a state-wide project as a way to expand the capacity of organizations to provide services to Ohioans in poverty. As an intermediary organization, TTI serves as the project sponsor for various AmeriCorps VISTA projects statewide, providing ongoing program management and technical assistance to its partner organizations. As the lead agency, TTI has demonstrated the capacity to serve as a mentor agency for other community- based and grassroots organizations, offering these agencies an opportunity to increase their capacity and develop sustainable programs that would otherwise not be available.
