  • Resource Mapping
    • What is the purpose of mapping?
    • What information are you looking for - essential question will determine what information you get
    • “The quality of our decisions is directly related to the qualify of the information we receive”
  • Why map?
    • Identify petals on the local daisy
    • Identify partners and programs
    • Better understand available resources
    • Identify ‘targets of opportunity’ to build a stronger service network
  • Three Approaches to Mapping
    • Organizational mapping -- connect the Youth Council to a larger network
    • Community asset mapping -- community capacity inventory, especially for specific groups
    • Community-youth mapping -- develop comprehensive data on youth services
  • Organizational Mapping
    • How does “X” relate to community organizations and resources?
    • Primarily as a tool for organizational development
