This handbook was designed to lead students step-by-step through the planning process for conducting a community project and, thereby, help them learn project-planning skills. The guide is organized in six sections. The first section, Preliminary Thinking, includes topics such as motivation (What's in it for me?), sample projects, personal strengths and weaknesses, human relations, and teamwork. The second section, Project Planning, leads students to identify the problem, issue or need, set project and personal goals, find out others' opinions, and connect to the community. In the third section, Getting the Big Picture, students are led to think big, consider all aspects of the project, and identify resources, while the fourth section, A Master Plan, presents the seven steps of a master plan. Doing the project is the topic of the fifth section, which includes a project log, time management form, weekly job duties report, challenges and projects report, interview questions, job list, and basic skills notes. Finally, the last section leads students to reflect on the project once it is finished. (KC)
