Plan the Year of Service


During this meeting, or more meetings, if needed, the Service Committee assembles to plan at least four projects for the year, for members of their Y to volunteer in service to their community.

The Strategic Priorities Worksheet, completed by leadership in advance of this meeting, provides the guidance the Service Committee needs to identify and select projects that align with the Y’s goals in strengthening its community. 


  • Service Committee Chair
  • Y Staff Advisor
  • Service Committee Members


The tools within this step help the committee to identify which projects they can lead to engage Y members in service to their community. It is important that the Service Committee takes the time to get acquainted with one another and to get oriented to the program and its toolkit. The tools within this step help with different aspects of planning and are meant to be used together, including Strategic Priorities Worksheet and the Collaborations Worksheet completed by Y Leadership in the previous step.
