Setting Short-term and Long-term Goals

((for groups and/or individuals) This workshop helps people learn the importance of setting goals. Participants practice setting goals for themselves, their families, schools and communities. It is both an introspective and interactive session. Usually 1 ½ hours.

How does a Neighborhood Grow?

As group members come together, defining a common vision for their community is an important early step. From there, naming the underlying issue without becoming overwhelmed by the problem is the next step to successful organizing. This workshop teaches a problem-solving and action planning technique as a fundamental organizing skill. Usually 1 ½ hours.

High Impact Planning

This process, developed by Barry Kibel of the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation, is a planning process meant to encourage community collaboration. It will broaden the base of participation in your group's effort to engage in fundamental (not cosmetic) change. The aim is to take concrete actions in your community in a relatively short amount of time, while maximizing everyone's involvement. Usually two 4-hour sessions.
