About this course

Proficiency Area: Planning.

Strategic planning is the process we use to enable our nonprofits to achieve their missions. It’s also the overarching ability–or capacity–to plan strategically over time.

In the third (and final) lesson toward your gold Merit badge, you'll explore:

  • How to put all of your learning on strategic planning efforts into practice using our learning plan worksheet.

  • A self-reflective exercise that will challenge you to explore your own skills, abilities, and vision for building your own capacity in this topic.
