Determine Needs

How could partners support and enhance your program?

Most programs have a wish list of programming and resources they would offer if time and money weren't issues. Partners can help fill these gaps. By clarifying program goals along with staff capabilities and resources, programs can identify where partners could step in to support or enhance experiences for youth.

  • Engage staff and youth to determine their programming wish list.
  • Inventory existing resources, including staff, financial and community, and determine gaps and needs.
  • Clarify program goals and specify what is still needed to achieve them.
