Through all its activities, RAPO for sport talent will be guided by the following five objectives:

2. To increase children and youth participation opportunities in sport, recreation and physical activity in a sustainable manner.
3. To build capacity of primary school teachers and local youth to enhance provision of sport and physical activity services.
4. To increase the level of participation in sport and physical activity for children and youth in rural areas to improve their health and well being.

Strategy and Implementation Summary.
It is critical that RAPO Sport talent takes a proactive strategy in promoting its program in the community as well as creating a strong fund-raising program. To accomplish these goals, RAPO Sport talent will have two groups overseeing the program's growth and development. The first will be a 12-member Program Services Group comprising of community members. This group will provide oversight of the program's service delivery to the community and will also be responsible for building community support for RAPO Sport talent. The second group will be a 10-member Finance Group that will have RAPO business representation. The Finance Group will have oversight over the program's fiscal operation and fund-raising activities.

The next step will be to recruit the volunteer coaches and facility supervisors for each season and use this group to promote the program at local schools. Coaches and facility supervisors will be recruited by using the community churches and civic organizations. In addition, the Geita town council Department is initiating a new program to recruit volunteer youth coaches from their own ranks. RAPO Sport talent tool is also working with the Community Service Program of State University to recruit college students as coaches. They will receive three university credits hours for their participation with RAPO Sport talent tool.
Mobilizing a coaching/supervision base will provide RAPO Sport talent the people power necessary to get its message to the entire community.
Sign-up for the program will be simplified by providing participation forms at each school and at the larger community markets. At each location, there will be a collection kiosk where the forms can be dropped off.
