To begin creating a logic model, Darcy needs to develop a GOAL statement for the mentoring program.
A goal is a broad statement about what a program intends to accomplish. A goal addresses the intended long-term outcome of a program.
Darcy comes up with three possible goal statements based on the above definition:
- To hire 50 mentors within two months for the program.
- To rid the Devonville community of all juvenile crime.
- To prevent juvenile delinquency in NW Devonville by strengthening high school students’ bonds to their school.
Based on what you know about Devonville, which goal statement do you think is most appropriate for Darcy’s mentoring program? Remember, it should be broad and describe the long-term changes the mentoring program expects to achieve in Devonville.
