Our first ACT assignment in Government class is for students to align themselves with friends who have a common goal. Once you’ve done this you have a couple of tasks. #1, your group must come up with a name. That name should encompass what your group is all about. You also need an acronym which is the initials that spell out your group name. Then we need a mission statement. The mission should answer the question, “Why you exist – or what is your organization’s core focus?
- Your mission statement should be:
- Market focused – who do you serve?
- What you want to be remember for…
Finally it should pass the T-shirt test. Would it fit on a T-shirt? Would you wear that T-shirt? Finally, would your staff wear it?
