Making a Difference Template - Local Units

Making a Difference Template - Local Units This template is designed for local units to use in reporting program impact on a monthly basis to local key leaders (county commissioners, legislators, extension board members, media, etc). The intent is to highlight a different program each month. However, the template provides local units with flexibility to adapt this to better fit your needs. This template is a Publisher file. Please note: The information you provide to the three questions are key. "Why is this issue important?" answers the question of "why"this program is important to our community. "How did Extension address this issue?" tells what Extension did to address this program through programs, workshops, media, etc. "What was the impact?" reports the knowledge gained and/or changes that participants made as a result of participating in our programs. The report is designed to be a one-page (one-sided) report for local decision makers. It is possible to add additional pages but local units will need to determine the formatting for additional pages. The template incorporates the use of the Grand Challenges. This template was modeled after the PFT Making a Difference Report in order to standardize the language used in impact reports. The data used in the sample report was taken from a statewide PFT report. We strongly encourage you to use local data whenever possible. Statewide data can be used as a comparison to the local situation.
