Year of Planning

The Year of Planning (YOP) program is the developmental process for implementing a NAF academy.

NAF academy portfolio managers and supporting staff provide personalized support and guided technical assistance to align local programming goals with NAF's design before an academy opens in the Launch Year.

The YOP Guide is a comprehensive outline of the YOP program. The Academy Design Team (ADT) uses guiding questions to lead discussions and a pacing guide to establish the timeline to create goals and complete strategic actions. Note: The YOP program is self-paced and flexible to meet local needs. Adjust pacing as needed.
