Readiness Assessment: Is Your Agency Ready to Start or Scale-Up a Program?


Because all municipalities are different, starting a Governments Engaging Youth (GEY) program is a process that is unique to each community. The readiness assessment matrix below will help you think through preliminary details for starting a youth-civic engagement program.

Use the tools below to:

  • Assess/identify target skills/competencies for program curriculum,
  • Identify how ready your agency is to implement or scale up a GEY model, and
  • Identify next steps.

These planning tools allow your agency team and partners to identify what you need to ask/know to move forward. These items will continue to be updated based on feedback from GEY sites.
