Drawing on your readings and reviewing the Riverbend City Nonprofit
Management mission, consider the options available to the Fuerza y Unidad nonprofit
organization and offer a proposal for a collaborative arrangement as a
recommendation to the Fuerza y Unidad Board of Directors. Consider in
particular the applicability of five principles of community collaboration
(Adapted from Wolf (2010), The Power of Collaborative Solutions, pp.
40–41) to the Fuerza y Unidad circumstances in Riverbend City. Note that while
we may refer to "community" collaboration organizations in Riverbend
City, the local government as well as community organizations may be considered
in your proposal.
Promote collaboration as an
exchange between partners.
Secure the participation of
those most directly affected by decisions with attention given to
decision-making and community empowerment.
Develop a common vision and
promote action based on that vision.
Create a collaboration proposal that rationalizes the possible collaboration
in terms of theories and principles, potential for advancing social justice
between sectors, and how missions are enhanced or undermined.
Your proposal may take any form, but be sure to include references as
