Moving to Future is a 5 Step Planning Process

  • 1. Community Assessment

    Successful programs address the needs and wants of the community. To find out what a community needs and what it wants, conduct a community assessment.


  • 2. Identify Priorities, Goals & Objectives

    After conducting the community assessment you are ready to get focused. Now you prioritize, write goals and objectives and decide what interventions to offer.


  • 3. Nutrition and Physical Activity Plan

    Now it’s time to get organized. Follow the plan template in this section to create a plan to improve the health of people in your community.


  • 4. Implementation

  • 5. Evaluation
