Professional refines the Organization's program vision and values
Professional proposes strategic goals and objectives with tactics to reach those goals such as management process, team roles and assignments, constraints, assumptions, and high level timeline/deadlines
We are ready to get started on the strategic work starting August 1 and are flexible with this start date.
Our organization was guided by a strategic plan from 2015-2018. We based our annual work plans on the strategic plan. It was instrumental in growing our organization to the next level. To ensure the viability of our organization, we need a comprehensive plan that guides the future direction of Wylde Center and acts as a mechanism that addresses the ongoing needs of the communities we serve. We would like a 5-10 year plan for longer term visioning.
We are a membership based non-profit that has been an integral part of the community for over 20 years. We educate children at our gardens and in schools. We cultivate 5 greenspaces in Decatur and Atlanta; and we build community at our gardens through our year round programs and events.
Our special mix of hands-on environmental education, community programming and organic gardens inspires greener, healthier, more connected communities in metro Atlanta.
