The tool box is broken down into four main sections to guide you through the steps of preparing for, planning, implementing and evaluating your campaign: Getting started; Campaign Strategy and Planning; Running the Campaign; and Reflection.

The Getting Started page explains key concepts that you should understand and consider in order to lead an effective campaign for community change. These concepts set the stage for the rest of the tool box.

The Campaign Strategy and Planning section takes you through the steps of planning how you will achieve the change you want to see. It covers how to analyze and frame the problem you want to address, develop your campaign strategy and design an action plan to achieve your objective.

The Running the Campaign page is designed to help you do what you set out in your plan. This page includes links to resources on core management responsibilities, like managing volunteers, communicating effectively within and outside of your team, managing information, and dealing with personal safety and security. Recognizing that you will likely run into challenges along the way and need to adapt, the page contains resources to help you adjust to changing circumstances.

After you complete your campaign, it can be helpful to think about the experience and identify lessons for future community change efforts. This includes considering what worked, what didn’t work, and why. The Reflection page can help you evaluate the  campaign experience.

This tool box covers the basics of each step of a campaign for community change and includes links to relevant pages on the Community Tool Box and other resources and practical tools. The tool box also features real examples of how young people around the world have applied these tools and techniques to improve their communities.
