This workshop will assist agency leaders and volunteers to effectively design and evaluate programs. Participants will explore promising practices and best evidence in the field – in the areas of program planning and evaluation. We will focus on strategies to build and deliver impactful programs as well as getting to the best qualitative and quantitative results (both process and outcome impact) for community-based agencies. Evaluation approach will include a focus on areas like developing helpful baselines, creating qualitative and quantitative indicators and tools for assessment and analysis of results.  We use an exciting, active adult education, anti-oppressive, interactive and participatory approach to the work.
