Transcript of Take Action Projects

What is a
Take Action Project?
You make the most of your Take Action project when you remember three goals:
education, inspiration, and action
. By keeping these goals in mind, you’ll understand the difference between immediate actions and service that really transforms a community. You’ll also find it easier to move past short-term “fixes” and create long-lasting, sustainable solutions that truly address the root of a problem.

A Take Action project picks up from where a short-term project leaves off. For example, if girls want to organize a book or clothing drive they could make their project a Take Action project by holding the drive annually and getting a sponsor to advertise and organize it every year. Girls who want to paint walls to cover up graffiti can create a club that travels around the city painting beautiful murals on buildings that were defaced. And girls who want to hold a march or fair could expand the event to include community artisans and make it an annual gathering. For each project, girls can publicize and get people in the community to come out and support. They can even get community leaders involved. When girls pursue Take Action projects, they take time to identify and understand the root cause of the issue they are addressing. Girls must also ensure that each project is sustainable and that the impact is measurable.
Measurable:

The success of the project can be determine based on the number of people the project helped, the number of people who were involved, any reduction in the community’s need, and other concrete numbers.

Sustainable:

Girls must make arrangements (such as collaborating with community leaders and/or organizations; building alliances with mentors) to ensure that the project creates lasting change and is not a one-time event.
