Resource mapping offers a method to link regional, community, and school resources with an agreed upon vision, organizational goals, specific strategies for addressing problems, and expected outcomes so that youth and families have access to the full array of services that they need.


Graphically mapping resources helps to better organize the heterogeneous resources and assets that are available within a larger system into a standardized, understandable, and centralized format.


As a result of resource mapping, community partners, school staff, families, and youth have more flexibility, autonomy, choice, and a better understanding of the resources and services that are available within a school and the larger community.
