Program planning

Different from lesson or event planning, program planning takes a big-picture look at the youth needs and assets of a community to make decisions about how a youth program can address those needs.

    • A programmatic goal that describes the impact you want to make on youth.
    • A growth goal that describes how you want to continue expanding your youth program beyond current audiences.
    • A retention goal that addresses your current audience's needs in order to ensure the greatest impact.
