Are you setting up a leadership council in your community to tackle improving outcomes for kids? Do you have a collective impact effort underway that you’re trying to strengthen and improve? Come hear about some of the big questions you’ll need to consider as you align existing community efforts and identify the backbone supports you’ll need to have in place.
The Forum brings deep roots in positive youth development and community change management, along with more than fifteen years of experience working with community partnerships around the country. Join this conversation to gain practical tools and learn about approaches you can use to improve your team's performance.
Two planning tools for community work will be shared: one to help you map and find opportunities for alignment among existing coalitions and partnerships, and another to assess readiness for key backbone support roles. All attendees will receive a copy of the tools, and will be invited to join free follow-up sessions to learn how to implement these tools as part of their larger planning efforts.
