Choose a place – run down, ignored, full of potential.
Find the people who care and bring them together.
Don’t forget the young people – they have energy and ideas,
and a place like this can help them grow.
Think about what matters.
Think about what could be.
Choose a name and use it wisely.
When things get difficult, persist.
When the money dries up, persist.
Find ways of joining the dots.
Remember you are part of something bigger.
