Youth Forward will be partnering with the Duke Center for Child and Family Policy to host a series of three free interactive sessions to help organizations Build a Better Grant.
In this second session, we will be creating an evaluation plan. What are you doing, how are you doing it, and is it working? Program planning and evaluation planning provides you with a wealth of data and other information on your program’s content and delivery, outcomes, and areas for improvement. You can use these data both for quality improvement and as evidence to support the value of your work to potential funders and others involved with your organization. A sound evaluation helps you to answer the following questions: What organizational support is needed to ensure adequate implementation? What are the outcomes at the organization, community, system, family, and/or individual levels? Can your organizations maintain these outcomes over time? Facilitatied exercises will assist participants in initial construction of evaluation plans for their works. If you sign up for this session, make sure that you register for the final session in the Build a Better Grant Series, the Grant Proposal Workshop.
