LANO Workshop on Evaluation


"Evaluation: A Powerful Tool to Document Impact, Improve Programs, and Expand Funding"


Does your organization need to do more to systematically evaluate your programs? Are you unclear about concepts like logic model, theory of change, and outcome measurement? Do you want specific techniques to improve your capacity to generate data that drives program improvement, reporting to funders, and accountability to the community?


This practical, hands-on workshop will explore key concepts and provide practical tools you can use to design and implement meaningful program evaluation in your organization.  The evaluation skills you gain will help you further your organization's mission by allowing you to tell the story of your programs' successes, thereby increasing the interest and support of clients, funders, partners, and the community.
