Your organization’s programs translate your mission into action and are its lifeblood. If you approach program design as both a verb and a noun, you realize that the result is a plan of action that stems from a collaborative process.

A program’s design should demonstrate that you understand and meet constituent needs, make an impact through measurable outcomes and have strategies for sustainability.  This class will teach you best practices in program design and in developing measurable outcomes that match available resources and accommodate feedback mechanisms for continual improvement.

It will help you pull together all these essential elements of resources, needs and staff so that you develop plans that reflect both your community and your organization, that are reality-based and created with measurable outcomes that can be evaluated to determine their success while providing a framework for funding proposals.
