Assignment Choice #1: Finding Partners
Assignment Choice #1: Finding Partners ( See the attach file- Action Plan)
Most community action plans can benefit from recruiting partners—individuals or organization that might help with the solution to the public-health issue. These partners may have money, special tools or skills, and other resources.
Create a list of at least 10 local partners who might be willing to help you implement or develop your own community action plan. Look ahead to Chapter 12 in your text for more details about how to identify stakeholders in your chosen community. Your list must include the potential partner’s name, comprehensive contact information (job title, address, phone, website, and any assistants’ names), and a short explanation of why you think he/she/it would be useful to your project. List why you think that particular partner might be interested in joining your effort—that is, what is the benefit to the partner in doing so?
Your partners could come from the following (don’t be limited by this list):
- Government officials (state, regional, local, or federal)
- Local health/public health department agent(s)
- Nonprofits or nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). Think broadly. For example, consider national and local organizations (e.g., men a’snd women’s organizations, schools, government-funded services, and volunteer organizations).
- Businesses. Businesses often help fund or implement community projects.
- Schools. Colleges or universities may have grants, special departments, or clubs/organizations.
- Churches or faith-based organizations
Your well-organized list should be in a Word document that is 2-3 pages in length.
