Program Planning and Development

At AMTC, we believe each program of an organization should support the organization’s mission. And each mission-supporting program deserves an excellent program plan that outlines the events and activities needed to reach program goals. As each program’s goals are properly implemented and reached, the organization’s mission, vision, and goals become realized, and resources are maximized. Program success contributes to organizational sustainability.

A successful program plan begins with a strong logic model that connects program goals to expected outcomes. As a planning partner, AMTC helps organizations develop a strong program logic model that then guides the development of a comprehensive program plan that provides specific goals, measurable activities, and detailed steps. If a goal, activity, or step does not support the program, it doesn’t support the organization’s ultimate mission, vision, or strategy. Also, including stakeholders in the process—both local organizations and community leaders interested in the goals of the program—is key to developing buy-in at the beginning of program development.

Developing a strategic logic model and program plan with community buy-in requires time, thought, and planning. AMTC helps our clients design logic models and program plans that respond to funding opportunities and fit nicely into a funding application while maintaining adherence to organizational goals.

The future success yielded makes putting effort into developing a strong logic model and program plan worth it. As a planning partner, AMTC brings our years of experiences in grant program design to our clients. Our team of expert program planners has years of experience successfully implementing similar programs. AMTC can help establish a new program for your organization or help an established program reach new capacity.
