Community Need Assessment Plan
Based on the topic and targeted population you selected, please complete Mission, Goals, and Objectives (MGOs) for your program.
Begin this assignment with an introductory paragraph. Example paragraph: â€œThis section contains the mission of the proposed program. It also contains sample goals and measurable objectives organized into three categories: outcome, impact, and process. These three categories are used as presented in the PRECEDE/PROCEED model (Reference for student: https://www.ruralhealthinfo.org/toolkits/health-promotion/2/program-models/precede-proceed).
Please complete the following:
1. Mission Statement: A 1-sentence program mission statement (The mission of the GetFit program is to.).
2. Outcome Goals & Objectives: Create ONE sample health goal and ONE sample quality of life goal. For each goal, create two sample objectives that are ‘SMART’ (must be measurable).
3. Sample Impact Goals & Objectives: Create ONE sample goal for each of the following: environmental goal, behavioral goal, predisposing goal, reinforcing goal. Create TWO enabling goals: one skills goal and one resource access goal. Then, for each goal, create two sample objectives that are ‘SMART’ (must be measurable).
4. Process (Intervention Development/Implementation) Goals & Objectives: Create 5 process goals, each of which must also include at least 3 measurable objectives (Process goals address activities/steps you will need to take to develop and implement your intervention.)
You are required to create five intervention components. The development/implementation of each component can be a separate process goal. The component action plans you’ll create for your intervention will contain steps that can be converted to measurable process objectives. This assignment should be formatted in APA 7th edition and should be at least three pages along with at least five references to support your health topic.
