  Directing Components
• Directing has 2 main components

  – recreation, tutoring time, growth groups,
    learning centers, family time
• Monthly events include:
  – Thanksgiving Dinner, Operation Christmas
    Child, Snow Day, Pool Party, Luau
• Resources are scattered and often
  stored in people’s brains
  – This makes it difficult for a new person
    to take over job responsibilities easily
    • There is not one place where someone can go
      and find what needs to be done
    • New people are continually reinventing the
      Project Purpose

• Helpful Hints
  – Tell the kids to come in their bathing
    suit and don’t let them change out of it
    to go home. Changing waists a lot of
    time and makes it very hard to leave in a
    timely manner.
• It is my hope that this resource will
  enable to program to be taken to the
  next level of excellence.
