Achieving collective impact requires all partners to clearly understand collaborative work and how partnerships improve conditions in communities. This three-day institute provides a survey of five key steps in collaborative work and how these steps put partnerships on a clear path to improving lives.


The steps are taught as part of a Big Picture Approach that helps community teams create a community-specific diagnosis and action plan, forge better connections to existing work in their community, and maintain an approach to this work that is both holistic and aspirational. This is a “hands-on lab” during which participants will apply the five steps and tools to specific goals in their communities.
The institute was developed by Community Systems Group and the Forum for Youth Investment and is delivered in partnership with FSG. It is designed for leaders, staff and volunteers of partnerships working to improve community conditions and outcomes. The institute is particularly useful for organizations that provide support to overarching leadership councils, provider partnerships, prevention coalitions and neighborhood groups. Participants are strongly encouraged to send community teams representing multiple partnership members.
