The Action Plan describes the ways to address the priority risk factors identified in Baraga County’s Communities That Care (Baraga County CTC) effort. The Communities That Care system is a way for members of a community to work together to promote positive youth development.
In August, 2015, members of the Community Board and community organization representatives attended the Community Planning Training. They drafted community-level outcomes to help define the desired changes for Baraga County and measure progress toward those outcomes. Community-level outcomes include behavior and risk- and protective-factor outcomes. This community group selected preliminary programs, policies and practices at the Community Planning Training and finalized their selections at the two day training. Program-level outcomes were also finalized at these meetings. These consist of implementation outcomes, which will measure the way in which the programs will effect change, and participant outcomes, which will measure the extent of the desired change.
