A “data party” is a unique way to bring together all the people invested in your program. Maybe it includes volunteers, your Board of Supervisors, county staff, or even youth. Each stakeholder has a different view on your program and has a voice to be heard. Data parties give everyone a chance to speak that voice and share back with the program their experience.

Data parties can also be used to help interpret data. Perhaps you collected evaluation data on a program; a data party can be an opportunity to interpret that data not only with those familiar with research and evaluation, but those who helped plan and implement the program, or who took part in the program.

The toolkit provides tips and suggestions for planning and hosting a successful data party.
