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.
