Goal: To create a sustainability binder, with the assistance of your CAC Program Supervisor, that you can pass on to the next AmeriCorps CAC member so they will have a head start on their new grant year. The Sustainability Binder will help sustain the efforts you started the year before and help your campus CAC program have a head start for the new grant year.
The Sustainability Binder is to be completed during the course of your AmeriCorps service year.
Best Practice: Write a 1 - 2 page monthly overview at the end of each month with bullet points of activities, events, contacts, resources, etc. during each calendar month. Also, include one or two paragraphs stating activities that engaged youth and activities youth were not engaged in or didn't show interest. This monthly overview will be an outline for the next year's AmeriCorps member so they do not have to reinvent the wheel for your program and they will have a strong foundation in which to build upon the program with your monthly updates.
