Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The measurable outcomes we hope to achieve are to increase monthly community participation from 75 participants to 100 and earn a satisfaction rating from 80% of group leaders with their experience being a rating of at least four out of five (5 bring the top score). Success will also be defined with with our advisory/partners through a semi-annual anonymous survey with 80% of respondents reporting satisfaction, on a rating scale of at least four out of five and our Annual Holiday Event success will be determined by number of participants (200+), demographics that reflect our community statistics, a physical show hands (and calculation) of express satisfaction with participant experience with a rating of at least four out of 5. Monthly program meetings and reports will be filed to record engagement level of the participants, educational review, number of participants, feedback on experience, room for improvement, address survey results, logistics and programming changes and a semi-annual survey will be administered in July and December, 2018 to participant leaders and advisory committee to assess overall value, quality of education, changes to participants' quality of life outside of classroom, individual participant needs addressed and rate the service provided by Alive and Kickin.
