Take Aim

STEP THREE: ENGAGE

Engagement of a broad set of stakeholders that have the capacity and commitment to guide change is one of the hallmarks of effective collective impact work. A range of individuals that represent multiple perspectives, including the diverse populations in your community, can come together around a common focus on improving outcomes. Direct inclusion of young people, families and community members is one of the most instrumental ways to make a big picture planning process not only cross-system but “person-centered.” This requires explicit strategies for including community members and focus populations in not just problem identification, but in problem-solving and solutions design.

Completeness Checks:

 Community is defined along with the important “communities within,” including communities by type (place, interest or experience) and by boundaries (neighborhood, city, county, island, etc.) 

 Engagement plan is created for each important community along with plan for involving and engaging leadership team in tandem with (or as a part of) community-level engagement
