Project for The Nuts & Bolts for Project Organizers

Overview

Too often, community projects lose steam or fall short of their goals due to a lack of organization. This toolkit will help you in the successful planning and delivery of your community project, no matter what the focus.

The Problem

If you’ve ever planned an event, you know that the devil is in the details. This toolkit is designed to help you organize volunteers to help you successfully complete your community project.

The Solution

Pulling together a team of volunteers — and knowing how to organize and motivate them — can help you run a successful community project.

In every community there is work to be done...in every heart there is the power to do it. —Marianne Williamson

Time Commitment

Varies by project, from a few hours to a couple of weeks.

Special Considerations
