CUSTOMIZED EVALUATION SUPPORTS

Free one-on-one program evaluation supports for grassroots
youth sector organizations across Ontario to track, measure and
share the impact of their work with youth.

Our
Process

Think of us as your personal evaluation coaches.
We’re here to listen, learn and work with you to use evaluation as a tool to gain insights about the impact your program is making for young people. 

We want to help your organization integrate evaluation into your organization in a rewarding way! This model is a guide to give you an idea of how the CES process could look. However, we know that step-by-step processes don’t always work perfectly or in sequence.  We will work closely with you to create and implement an evaluation plan that fits your needs, meeting you where you are.

Discovery Meeting 1
We want to meet with you to learn more about your organization, assets, capacities and evaluation goals. The YouthREX Hub Manager in your region will meet with you to do an intake interview and go through any questions you may have about the CES process. We can also go through the required forms that will help us thoughtfully develop your evaluation plan.

Discovery Meeting 2
Do you have a Theory of Change or Logic Model? We will meet with your team and stakeholders to develop and/or reflect on these so that we can all move forward with a common understanding of the outcomes your program wants to accomplish for the youth you work with. We’ll also show you a draft of the Evaluation Plan tailored for your organization.

This is where we start implementing your evaluation plan! Don’t worry – you’re not on your own here. In addition to overseeing the implementation of the plan, we commit to bi-weekly check-ins, arranging additional support where needed (such as student interns), notifying you of free YouthREX capacity building opportunities, and providing lots of opportunities for you to let us know what is and isn’t working.
