ACT Canvas

Description :

The ACT Canvas Course is a Community Project Design course developed by me through incorporating various renowned models liked "Business Model Canvas", "Logical Framework Analysis", etc.

The course is designed to progressively equip volunteers with the essential skills-set that are necessary in designing a community project, both for urban settings or rural settings.  Although the course is a community project design course, the skills-set learnt can be applied to business design, social enterprise design and so forth.

This self-learning part of the course will cover the necessary theory and explanation of the ACT Canvas, so that upon completion, volunteers are encouraged to form groups with others to apply what they have learnt to draft out a community project blueprint which that can implement.  We will be updating to volunteers on when and where these workshops will be organised for them to meet up with other volunteers who have completed the ACT Canvas Course.  In the course, volunteers will also be able to meet potential mentors who will be able to guide them along their designing process plus also guiding them in their implementation through our partnering organisation.

I believe the skills-set will greatly benefit you!  It is a compilation of my many years experiences in running community projects in Yunnan, China and also as business consultants with a number of SMEs in China plus Singapore.   As you learnt and apply these skills-set to impact the community, you will get so familiar with it that you can also use it in other parts of your life to initiate changes towards better growth and development!

Objectives :

  • To orientate volunteer to the ACT Canvas - Solutions Generator Blueprint
  • To understand the various elements that need to be placed into the canvas

 

Course Duration :

The Course is made up of four modules.  Each module there are 4 units.

The duration of each unit is actually quite short; it can be finished in less than 10 mins.

At the end of each module, there will be a quiz to complete.

Once completed successfully, volunteer can download the Certificate of Completion.
