Strategic Plan Development Process

The current strategic plan was initially adopted by the board in September 2014, following an intensive effort from March to July of that year. The full board invested 17 hours of planning across three workshops, and they were supported by the board's ad hoc planning advisory committee, which spent an additional 10 hours in four planning preparation meetings. Professional facilitation and national youth development experts supported the board's planning efforts, inclusive of individual interviews with board members prior to the board workshops. In advance of the board planning process, there was significant program planning work by staff and providers around school health, after-school and summer programs, youth enrichment, parenting and early childhood development. Planning was also informed by input from parents, youth, prior program results and the current research literature in key program areas.
