The Jennings County Youth Foundation's strategic planning task force releases two community assessment surveys as part of our strategic planning process. The surveys will assess the needs of Jennings County youth in regard to after school programming and recreational activities from community input. Our purpose is to responsibly collect donations, grants and sponsorships that will raise awareness and funds to operate a youth center and support other youth activities and programs in Jennings County.

In order for us to make recommendations to the strategic planning task force that will help Jennings County youth the most, we are asking for the community's help. A short survey is a quick way to give input on:
• The important issues facing young people in Jennings County
• The types of programs needed in the community.

The community assessment surveys will be open and available for the community to participate until January 31, 2015. There are two surveys; one for the youth living in Jennings County and the second for the community members over the age of 18. The youth will have special access to take the survey at school through a collaborated effort with the Jennings County school corporation.

This strategic planning opportunity is part of the non-monetary grant that JCYF received in September 2014 from the Indiana Youth Institute (IYI). The process of community change can be complex and challenging, but their model breaks down the process into a series of manageable steps. It encourages the use of local experts and resources instead of reliance on outside experts and resources. To be successful, any effort toward making change within a community must begin with strategies appropriate to its stage of readiness.

"Our first step is to make sure that the community agrees and is willing and ready to support our efforts," Kelly Hatton, JCYF President said. "We will use the results of these community assessment surveys to continue working with our IYI consultant and develop a 3 year strategic plan."
