Our vision for Believe It. Build It. – Minnesota’s Guide to Effective Afterschool Practices has always been that afterschool providers and youth workers across the state would truly use it in their programs. But we know it’s not that simple. The Believe It. Build It. (BiBi) guidebook has all the instructions for building quality programs, but programs also need the tools to really get started. That’s why we’re excited to announce the BiBi Toolkits online resource page today, as well as the first toolkit – the Use this Book! Toolkit.
The Use This Book! toolkit includes new guided reflection sheets to support your implementation of Believe It. Build It., as well as everything you need to facilitate the Use This Book! session with your partners or stakeholders, so you can start putting Believe It. Build It. (BiBi) to work for your programs. Use this Book! is a hands-on session where participants explore the content and resources of BiBi, and identify actions to integrate the book’s Continuous Program Improvement process into their programs.
