Conduct a Community Mapping or Urban Assessment

Part 2 > Essential Element 2 Conduct a Community Mapping or Urban Assessment

A community mapping or urban assessment allows you to identify the places and spaces where youth gather, community leaders and organizations to work with, and various factors (social, demographic, economic and political) that may affect your program. It’s important to identify these people, places and factors early to ensure that your program is feasible, affective and in line with community values. Use Worksheet #2: Urban Assessment and Worksheet #3: Community Mapping to learn more about this.
