Take Action: You and your team have mapped your community and recognized a set of local needs. Now that you have some ideas for possible campaigns, it’s time to plan and act! Taking action is where you will spend the bulk of your time — this is step in which you and your group will make a difference in your community.

CHOOSE A CAMPAIGN
Use the information you gathered through mapping to narrow down your campaign ideas and identify a service campaign. Consider questions like: "What do you like about your community and how can you preserve and improve that specific aspect of life there?" and "What problems or community needs does your group feel most excited and passionate about?" 

  • TIP: Use the "Choosing a Campaign" activity in the Toolkit (p. 21)!

START A PROJECT PROFILE
Once you've identified your campaign, create your project profile on rootsandshoots.org!
