Resources to Use While Social Distancing

TASC is providing guides, support, and resources to help your students not only continue a successful year but also prepare for 2020-2021.

COVID-19 may have disrupted us for a time, but TASC has determined to
The situation is changing by the day—even by the hour, and it all too easy to slip into analysis paralysis while deciding what to do. Let’s give our councils the tools and the support to adapt boldly to meet today’s challenges.

Shift, Shelve, and Save

• Decide what not to do and prioritize what must be done.
• Develop new plans of attack rather than relying on rules of the past.
• Build connection and strengthen relationships.
• Continue to deliver.
• Engage for impact. Reach out for frequent “pulse checks.”
• Involve your team. Ask for help. No one can do it all alone.
• Focus on needs, and everyone needs purpose.
• Recognize that focuses on the needs of others and working to meet those helps the helper.
• Collect and amplify positive messages.

And remember what counts as success. Success is steady progress toward your goal. (Jim Rohn)

Your TASC officer teams in 19-20 and 20-21 pulled together guides to help your council continue to work for good and to earn points toward recognition in next year’s state reports.
