July 2014 – Setting Goals with Beyond the Bell
Creating a strong program vision that is aligned with goals helps ensure that everyone in your program is working toward the same purpose. Tool 37: Goal Setting Worksheet will help you develop a set of overarching short- and long-term goals for your program and then identify action steps to meet them. Starting with the program vision statement (from Tool 36: Visioning Worksheet and Meeting Agenda), use the worksheet to identify goal areas and specific goals within those areas, then identify a timeline and activities to meet those goals.
