Program Proposal

Topic: Program Proposal
Order Description
Identify the target population. Regardless of the track and issue chosen, a target population must be identified for the proposal. Identify the target population associated with the chosen issue. Within the target population, choose the developmental stage that will act as the focus for the proposal. Many programs may directly and/or indirectly influence people in different stages; however, it is important to select the stage that is most applicable to the specific program being proposed. For example, in a program for adults who are caring for their elderly parents, the focus is on the adults (likely in middle adulthood) so a middle adulthood focus would be most appropriate for that program.
Identify the geographic location where the program will be deployed. Programming will be directly influenced by the location in which it will take place. For example, a child safety program in a rural farming community will likely have different objectives and needs than a child safety program in a large metropolitan city.
Research a minimum of five peer-reviewed articles on the chosen issue in the Ashford University Library. All sources utilized for the Program Proposal must have been published within the last 10 years.
Creating the Program Proposal
Program proposals take on many forms and styles. Creativity is encouraged because it not only tests the boundaries of what is possible for solutions to various issues, but also typically increases the chances for funding. Regardless of the issue being addressed, the Program Proposal must incorporate the following headings (noted in bold) and include the supporting information that is detailed beneath each heading.
Proposal Summary
Under this heading, provide a summary paragraph that presents the program, its objectives, and how the program will address an area of need in the identified geographic location and issue of interest.
•Identify the target population and developmental stage of the population, as well as the intended program track. (These will be elaborated upon further in the Program Narrative and Procedures section of the proposal.)
•Identify the geographic location for the program and the specific needs within that location. (These will be elaborated upon further in the Program Narrative and Procedures section of the proposal.)
•Create a purpose statement that applies developmental theory and research to policy and community.
•Conclude with a purpose statement in which the need for the program as well as the alignments with the support and findings are stated. (These will be elaborated upon in the Background section of the proposal.)
Organization Description and Qualifications
Under this heading, act as an individual representative and identify the community agency submitting this proposal.
•Explain what qualifies the agency to create this specific program (education, experience, history, etc.).
•Describe how the agency plans to promote the success of this program and what resources the agency has access to or can provide.
While this community agency will be a construct rather than a true community agency, the information and attributes described must align with the qualifications expected of a true agency of that nature and the qualifications should support the goals of the proposal.
Under this heading, explain human development in the context of both historical and current trends by presenting a brief summary of the relevant research published within the last 10 years. Within the summary:
•Identify other active programs in the geographic area to eliminate duplication of current programs.
•Evaluate the unique scholarly perspectives and research in the field of developmental psychology as they relate to the specific program being proposed.
•Address how the scholarly information collected illustrates a clear need for this program.
Program Narrative and Procedures
Under this heading, describe the program in detail. Include the overall vision, the intended target population, and geographical location, and specify how this program will be introduced to the community.
•Provide a step-by-step outline of what will be implemented and detail how each step of the outline will be accomplished.
?Within the outline, analyze any ethical considerations for the deployment of the program using elements of developmental psychology research and practice to support the suggested implementation.
Program Timeline and Cost/Benefit Assessment
Under this heading, provide a visual timeline for implementation of the program and for meeting expected milestones. How long will planning, preparation, hiring, and commencement of the program take? Once active, how long is the program expected to run, and/or how often?
•Address how the benefits to the target population and organization(s) will outweigh any potential costs to create and implement this program.
•Assess how time, employee experience, volunteer base, and space utilization will figure into the cost/benefit analysis.
Program Evaluation and Expected Outcomes
Under this heading, evaluate the proposal and describe potential outcomes considering what might happen if the program exceeds expectations, meets expectations, or does not meet expectations.
•Address accountability measures including performance reviews and milestones to be met.
•Describe how this program will meet accreditation standards in the short and/or long term.
