Before we start Step 1 take a few minutes with a partner to think and talk about your community and literacy. Finish each statement with a few words or a simple picture and talk to each other about what comes to mind.
Step 1: Create the Vision
A community vision describes what is hoped for and valued in the community. It is an ideal picture of the future.
Some people and organizations have a vision of a better future and they use it as a guide for what they do.
Some people might think that imagining a better future is foolish and not very practical. It may feel a bit foolish a first but a vision is practical because it guides you and helps you on the right path while you create a plan.
