We provide grassroots youth sector organizations in Ontario with free one-on-one program evaluation supports aimed at helping organizations better understand, track, measure and share the impact of their work with youth in our communities.

We will develop a customized evaluation plan with you and support your organization in implementing it, all with the goal of helping you understand and increase the impact of your program. We will support you to use the findings to inform and improve youth wellbeing – in your organization, community and beyond.

What could your customized evaluation plan include?

  • Development and/or revision of your program’s Theory of Change/Logic Model
  • Data collection, management, analysis and interpretation
  • Reporting/presenting findings
  • Coaching in evaluation and related activities
  • Other: We are here to be responsive to your needs! Activities can be customized to your program and evaluation goals.

We use our Framework for Evaluating Youth Wellbeing to guide the CES process. This framework is a simple three-phase seven-step process for developing an evaluation plan, implementing the plan and using the findings to improve the program and promote the wellbeing of youth participants. Specific to a youth program context, the framework also includes three guiding lenses: Learning-Focused, Youth-Engaged and Contextualized Methods.

We are here to work with you – think of us like evaluation coaches!
