IAC facilitates collaboration that assists agencies in discussing, understanding and aligning actions on social issues. As needs in the community arise, IAC convenes stakeholders and facilitates their ability to effectively and successfully collaborate. IAC drives effective collaboration by researching and providing evidenced-based, best practice techniques for structuring collective work.

IAC currently facilitates a number of collaborative initiatives:

Quarterly Virtual Convening of Human Service Providers

An opportunity for IAC members to come together to discuss services being provided as well as emerging community issues and trends. The objective is to increase our members’ collective understanding of who does what across the social sector landscape, and build a more holistic understanding across the sector of the priority needs and issues members are seeing. IAC designs and facilitates these sessions.

Nonprofit Alliance of Bermuda

A group of nonprofit leaders committed to working collectively to improve the impact of nonprofits and champion their value in the community. The goal of the Alliance is to effectively implement Collective Impact models of collaboration evidenced by a common agenda, shared measurement, mutually reinforcing activities, continuous communication, and backbone support. The Alliance currently has two working groups looking at a nonprofit awareness campaign and food insecurity.

Youth Development Learning Community 

A collection of youth-serving organisations invested in inspiring and cultivating youth and young adults to reach their full potential. The goal of the Youth Development Learning Community is to collaborate in order to 1) provide peer to peer learning and capacity building, and 2) to raise the youth development standards in Bermuda by improving access to and quality of youth services.
