SCOPE has partnered with the Positive Youth Development Council (PYD) to develop a county-wide plan for children and youth ages 0-21.
Since 2005, SCOPE has honored a “Boundary Crosser” at our Annual Celebration.
A Boundary Crosser is a person who connects people across boundary lines that traditionally divide community. They are citizen leaders who extend past their familiar territory, whether that’s government, non-profits, business, ethnic groups, religion, or neighborhoods to become community builders.
Sarasota County Government has contracted with SCOPE to develop a set of Human Service Outcomes and Indicators. Explore the list of eighteen "outcomes" or aspirations, and thirty-nine indicators that SCOPE has developed for measuring community well being.
In 2016, SCOPE conducted a survey of Sarasota residents ages 65 and over to find out what barriers they face to using different modes of transportation, including cars, buses, taxis, uber, and community transport. We also asked about their satisfaction with their ability to get around in this county, and what they think it will be like in the future.
