Organization Tools

Brainstorm and Learn

  • Take a quiet moment to brainstorm what tools you use to keep their materials organized and tasks on track. Rank their effectiveness from 1-10 (10 meaning they are always able to stay organized with this method, 1 meaning it is completely ineffective).
  • Watch the video on organization tools or go through the presentation yourself.

Group Planning

  • Choose one of the hypothetical community projects that would need to be completed in the next six months.
  • Create a project plan using at least 1 of the organization tools discussed.

Hypothetical Community Projects

This project promotes healthy living habits, raises awareness about wellness resources, and encourages community members to prioritize their physical and mental well-being.
