Community Visioning: Generating Support and Action for Community Education.
Ellis, Timothy J.; And Others
Ways in which community "visioning" can be used to generate support and action for community education are described in this paper. Six steps in the community visioning process are discussed: (1) preparing; (2) conducting a workshop; (3) obtaining community feedback; (4) action planning; (5) recruiting, implementing, and following up; and (6) evaluating and celebrating. The community visioning model presents an alternative to the traditional needs-based or deficit-planning process in the following ways: it is proactive, future-oriented; and it views the community educator as a facilitator. Two figures are included. (Contains 21 references.) (LMI)
