Strategic Plan 2013-2016

In November 2013, the staff, Board of Directors, members of the Advisory Board, parents and youth met for a day-long Strategic Planning retreat. Facilitated by kiran nigam of the Anti-Oppression Resource and Training Alliance (AORTA), the group identified six major goals for the staff and Board to focus on over the next three years. They are:

  1. Increase diversity in all parts of the organization (Board of Directors, staff, volunteers, interns, campers, programming) so we are more equitable, relevant, and accessible.
  2. Make concrete steps towards securing year-round space for office, storage, practice rooms, programming.
  3. Build strategic partnerships and community connections to enhance our programming and embed and integrate us in the community.
  4. Grow sustainably by increasing organizational capacity focusing on staff, board of directors and volunteer development; financial stability; and financial resources.
  5. Strengthen existing programming and develop new programming in order to better meet our mission.
  6. Amplify youth voice and increase youth power by developing opportunities for youth to build leadership skills and including youth in the decision-making and direction of the organization.
