Projects and Events
One of the important things your club does is design, plan and carry out projects. As a team, you’ll draw on your passion and apply it to a problem that matters to you – coming up with a project that can make significant change at school, in the Club, in your community, globally or even in the world of technology or social media.
Design and planning
In this phase, you’ll use the Passion + Problem = Project approach to figure out your passions, identify a need or problem your community faces and design a project to address the problem. There are many issues in the world that need attention, and it may seem overwhelming to choose one. But, it’s important to remember that each of us has the power to make change by taking one step at a time.
From plan to action
As you get ready to implement the project, review the final plan to make sure all tasks have been completed. Check in with committees to see if they’re ready to move forward. Brainstorm with the team about solutions to any last-minute glitches. You may need more meetings or committee work to make sure everyone is prepared, knows what to do and has the support they need.
