What qualifies resources for inclusion in the Compass?
The Compass is a curated collection of the top SBC resources. When contributors submit materials, we review them to ensure that they meet our two criteria:
- The item was created using a strategic process
- The item has documented positive results - whether in the form of evaluation reports, success stories, case studies, or broader adoption
Is the content in Compass resources up to date?
Many of the materials included in the Compass were produced more than 10 years ago and their content may not be consistent with the most recent recommendations or practices. Before using any of the resources, be sure to check with your local health specialists to ensure that the information is up to date.
What is Springboard?
The Compass is teamed closely with Springboard, an online community of SBC professionals who are passionate about making a difference in the world. Members connect with one another, share experiences, ask and give advice, post jobs, and enhance their skills. To participate in the community, register at springboardforsbc.org.
