One of the things that help communities thrive is when they can participate in different projects together. It sometimes takes the initiative of the community leader, or in some instances, suggestions from members of the community to come up with the project ideas. Some of the tips that will help you plan a successful project are as follows.
Understand the Community Members
For you to have a good project, you must first understand the people you are working with. You need to understand every individual member, their passion, their strengths, and even weaknesses. Once you know them, you can then begin to assign them different roles based on where you think they will perform best. You should also learn about yourself to avoid getting overwhelmed. Make it fun; for instance, you can tell them to wear some of the exercise attire such as the ones at Aim’n and have regular meetings that start with light jogging.
Make Everyone Feel Useful
Remember that for a community project to make an impact, the community must get involved. It can be something simple yet impactful. You should then start the process of getting individuals involved. Ask people to volunteer and share with them the roles that are yet to be taken.
Have a Clear Goal
People will want to know what the project is about and how it benefits society. You should have a clear goal for that so that people are motivated to participate.
