PART ONE: Learning Task

  • Using Mrs. Tysko's model "Coffee Conscious Communities" and the planning packet she gave you, define your organization with a name, a logo, a slogan or motto.
  • Write a mission statement that answers these questions:
    • Why does your organization exist?
    • What problem are you trying to solve?
    • How are you going to solve it?
      • Be specific. Don't just say, "We want to save animals." Say, "Our goal is to protect the African elephant from extinction by encouraging the governments in Africa to prosecute poachers, preserve elephant habitat, and educate the public about the value of keeping these beautiful animals with us!"
  • Divide up the various organizational tasks, and get to work!
