Workshop Description

Evaluation not only provides youth programs with the tools to understand, measure, and track the intended outcomes and impact of their programs, it also helps to understand the diverse needs of the communities they serve and how they can better prepare themselves to meet those needs in the future.

This interactive workshop will provide an overview of conducting program evaluation in the youth-serving sector. It will discuss moving evaluation beyond reporting requirements to truly have an impact on both programming and the sector as a whole.
