If you do get local media coverage, share the links! Use social media to distribute the links of local coverage.
Set up a Facebook page or Facebook event where people can get more information and follow your progress. It’s a great outlet for people to contribute ideas and share their experiences.
While you’re on Facebook, be sure to “like” the Make A Difference Day page and share your posts with us. Twitter is a good resource, too. You can follow @MDDay for updates about the day and share details with us and your followers.
This resource guide is organized into action-oriented chapters that will help you work with the community, effectively plan and manage projects from start to finish and develop a framework for projects.
Inside these pages, you’ll explore local issues and create meaningful ideas to affect change in your community. You’ll also explore the importance of community, leadership and service.
2017 Certificates will be available shortly before Make A Difference Day.
