Professionals and practitioners in afterschool and summer programs see evidence that their work benefits young people every day, but may struggle to quantify and effectively tell the stories, especially when working with a limited budget.
Fortunately, there are many terrific free and low-cost resources that afterschool and summer programs can use to refine their vision for evaluation, collect relevant, meaningful information, and put that information into action. In this session, panelists will share their go-to resources for evaluation and continuous program improvement in afterschool and summer and offer insight about how to make the most of what’s available.
This session is intended as an intermediate-level overview of available resources for evaluation and learning. Program leaders and supervisors, and those with a formal role for data collection and reporting, are most likely to benefit from attending.
