This online course prepares nonprofit leaders and aspiring leaders to focus on the mission and create innovative programs which impacts the community.
In our first lesson, we will talk about different program components (inputs, processes, outputs (tangibles) outcomes (impacts), and feedback). We will learn about the program planning process. We will discuss how to focus on outcomes and coordinate the new and current programs. You will learn about other concepts and tools like collaboration, key indicators, short- and long-range focus, innovation, pilot program, program review, and program costs.
In this lesson, you will learn how to specify goals, identify the resources you need, identify indicators of progress and measurements of success, and communicate the program’s potential value. We will talk about an effective Logic Model Design and how to implement it in your program development. We will cover performance measures, tracking, program presentation, and the importance of revisiting and revising your logic model.
In this lesson, you will be provided with a basic logic model template and will learn how to identify your goals, assumptions, and the influences and barriers affecting your non-profit organization.
