Community Problem Solving

Team Community Problem Solving

A community problem is a problem that exists within the school, local community, region, state, or nation. In the Community Problem Solving Program (CmPS) teams apply skills learned in Future Problem Solving to real problems in their community. Teams move from hypothetical issues to real world, authentic concerns, implementing a developed action plan. The top Community Problem Solving Team projects in Virginia are invited to the FPSP International Conference in June.

Teams are divided into three divisions:

Grades 4 - 6 (Junior)
Grades 7 - 9 (Middle)
Grades 10 - 12 (Senior)

Individual Community Problem Solving

Individual Community Problem Solving is identical in structure and purpose to the regular Community Problem Solving Program except that an individual rather than a team carries out the project.
