Hello! AfA needs your input for a SWOT, so we can make informed decisions about our future goals and plans. Please fill in your responses no later than Jan 12, so we can compile the responses.

(Responses can be anonymous, although it does help if you identify yourself.)

SWOTs can sometimes be confusing. In case you haven’t done one before, instructions are included for each response. Answers must be in the form of a statement of fact, include what you have observed, not what you believe may be true.

Feel free to contact Catherine via email at email hidden; JavaScript is required or via Slack if you have any questions or need assistance completing the form.

If more than one role, select the role that requires MOST of your time.
What is the primary skill/resource you offer that supports the agency's mission?

Agency Strengths

What do you think are the three greatest INTERNAL strengths of AfA? (What are we doing within our agency that is working well?) Please note this is different from the Opportunities section, which asks what things are EXTERNAL that are in our favor.

Agency Weaknesses

What do you think are the three biggest INTERNAL challenges AfA has? (What are we doing within the agency that needs improvement or change?) Please note this is different than Threats, which are EXTERNAL factors that may impact our success.

External Opportunities

What do you see as three EXTERNAL opportunities AfA can take advantage of? (What societal, financial, environmental or other changes present interesting opportunities for our agency?)

External Threats

What do you think are the three biggest EXTERNAL threats AfA faces? (What societal, financial, environmental or other factors might reduce our ability to impact the community and the youth we serve?)

What do you think are the top three most important areas of focus over the next year?

If you were the Executive Director, what top three things would you address immediately?

Please be sure you are familiar with the budget in order to avoid unrealistic recommendations.
Please be specific. Rather than "staffing," consider "staff recruitment," or "staff retention," or note specific staff qualities we require; instead of saying "funding," consider "need a contracted professional grantwriter" or "need a fundraising professional."
