Introduction to ROMA


In this training, participants will be introduced to the ROMA management framework and how it is used to guide our work in Community Action. The curriculum covers basic concepts such as: Mission Statements, Theory of Change, Community Assessment, Result-Oriented Planning, Outcomes, Performance and many other principles. Participants will come away with a better understanding of how to plan and implement practices that lead to positive outcomes for low-income families and communities.

Participants should expect to actively participate in this training. This means turning on your camera, using your workbook and participating in small group breakout discussions.
