So you have decided to join a coalition. You are probably very excited and dedicated. Now that you are ready to move forward, what do you do next? How do you start a coalition? What makes a coalition successful? Do you have a plan? Coalition can be defined as a group of people or groups who have joined together for a common purpose. How to start a coalition is not a mystery. First you identify your need, and then you find individuals or organizations that are interested in helping to find a solution for that need.
