  • You can break your goal into smaller goals to make it achievable.
  • You can predict risks or things that might go wrong and work out ways to solve them!
  • Having a clear plan will help your teacher or other staff support you.
  • Having a clear plan will help you get others on board as they will understand what you are aiming to do and why.

Check your progress


How is your Mission Action Plan going?  Taking time to reflect and check your progress is important.  It will help you see what is working well, find any problems or road blocks and help you find ways to fix them.

It is a good idea to check in regularly – every 1 or 2 weeks depending on your project.


  1. Read the Mission Action Plan Progress Report
  2. Discuss as a group.  You may not need to answer all the questions. Focus on the ones that are most relevant.
  3. Write down what you agree to change.
