Step 1: Engage and Create Connections

  • Terms of Reference: A Terms of Reference lays the collective ground rules for how a team will work together. Use the template to fill in the roles, responsibilities and processes your group will use to create an effective team!

Step 2: Understand Your Community

  • Community Profile: As you gather information about your community, it’s helpful to put it all in one place. Completing the Community Profile will prompt numerous ideas about what information to collect, as well as interesting ways to capture the information using diagrams and graphs.  
  • Collective Team Assets Inventory: The template is for gathering the talents, skills, passions and interests of your team members. 

Step 3: Prioritize and Plan

  • Community Brainstorming template: Brainstorming ideas the group would like to work on can be a lot of fun. Try the series of energizing questions in the Community Brainstorming Template to help capture the ‘who, what, where, when and why’ of possible community project activities.
