Project Elements

1) What information tools & technologies did you used to complete your Doors to Diplomacy project?

We used the internet, computer software, Senator Hagel, and books. It was very helpful to read and listen peoples opinions about the topic and then to make note of what they felt was important and their 'little tricks' on the matter.

2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your Doors to Diplomacy project both on-line and in person.

As ambassadors of our communities we will take it one step further by getting more contacts and connections to leadership so that we can live leadership through our lives. We are SO proud of the work that we are doing and thankful for everyone that wis being a great help to us. Thank you!

3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?

Our project will make a difference since it is user friendly and enthusiastic about the subject. I think we have helped and are going to continue helping our community by learning about what they need and we will suceed. Our work is very exciting and we are to thankful for words.

4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?

We involved everyone who had something to contribute. They were helpful, honest, and nothing less than brilliant. Thank you!

We learned more and more than we ever expected. Our feedback and insights were basically people didn't know how to act upon what they have learned and modern day examples of people who acted upon it.
