Active Children Portland (ACP) is a non-profit making a significant positive impact on the children of our community. ACP’s mission is to empower students to lead healthy lives, succeed academically, and inspire positive community engagement. This objective is accomplished through after-school sports, nutrition, creative writing, and service-learning programs. The programming is provided at no-cost to families, schools, and the communities, relying entirely on individual, corporate and private foundation support.

Objectives for those priority strategies were identified and broken down into manageable pieces. A timeline was created and project planning for the first year began using the new project management tool.
