Executive Summary

This report summarizes the results of El Centrito Family Learning Centers (El Centrito) strategic planning process. The Strategic Plan's purpose is to establish goals, measures of success, and strategies that will guide the efforts of Board and staff from July 2010-June 2013. The Plan also places goals, measures, and strategies in the context of the organization s mission, vision, and values, and the internal and external environment in which it operates.

This planning process comes at a key time for El Centrito as it works to become a sustainable organization.

The mission of El Centrito Family Learning Centers is to prepare youth and families of Ventura County to meet the future and become productive members of the community by providing bilingual, bicultural family and youth educational programs in partnership with parents, schools, and neighborhoods.

To fulfill its mission and remain sustainable for the future, El Centrito’s vision over the next three years is to build the leadership capacity of the staff and the Board of Directors; diversify funding streams; secure long-term facilities that allow for the licensure of our early education programs; and develop productive, mutually beneficial partnerships that reflect El Centrito’s core values.

Finally, an Implementation Guide was created to help the Board and senior management monitor the many simultaneous strategies detailed in this document.
