The West Philly Promise Neighborhood continues to conduct biennial neighborhood surveys to have rigorous data collection and evaluation in align with the Department of Education's requirements for Promise Neighborhoods. To conduct the survey, Drexel has prioritized hiring Promise Zone residents (the Zone and Neighborhood share the same boundaries) and in doing so has seemed to have more success in survey collection. The Promise Zone resident surveyors know their neighborhood culture and have the important ability to gain trust more easily than a non-resident would. This blog post interviews five surveyors in the neighborhood.
