Last week I gave a webinar on Best Practices in Informal Education and as part of my presentation I incorporated this list. Several participants contacted me after and requested that I make this available and that is exactly what I am doing. I want to acknowledge Shira Hammerman, Areyvut’s Educational Consultant for her help in developing the 7 C’s of Tikkun Olam. This can be used to help you plan, structure and implement programs that are meaningful and that impact your target audience and the broader community. Please acknowledge and credit Areyvut when you use this.
7 Cs of Tikkun Olam
Consider the needs of the community that you are trying to help and choose a goal that meets those needs
Set goals and create a step by step plan to accomplish those goals
Put your concern for others first, but do not neglect your own passions in choosing your project
Think out of the box in terms of how you might accomplish your goals
Work with others so your results are widespread and withstanding
Be aware of your attitude, both when you approach potential partners and when you work with those in need
Be reflective about your work: Is your project fulfilling a real need in the community? Is this the best use of your time and money? Is your plan an effective means of achieving your goal?
