It is your role to manage the complex set of activities described in your original application. Managing the myriad activities included in these SS/HS comprehensive plans can be more than a full-time job, and it is possible to define your success by how well you manage the project.
Moreover, leading for systems change can sustain your initiative’s positive outcomes for many years to come.
As an SS/HS project director, you can lead for change in your community, with several goals in mind. First, transforming the quality of interventions and activities that the systems serving children and youth in your community implement, and second, varying how the systems collaborate around common goals. Aiming for systems change requires that you search for and capitalize on opportunities to create systemic change that sustains the work of your initiative.
