Free evaluation programme for local youth organisations

28 Aug 2013

Do you provide youth services in Lewisham?

Are you interested in working with other VCS to evaluate the impact of your work?

Think:learn:Do, a local social enterprise supporting youth charities to access and use evaluation data, are offering local youth organisations access to a FREE evaluation programme. 

Participating charities will have an opportunity to join together in a local evaluation network to identify shared outcomes of interest to young people and receive an evaluation of their work against a set of jointly agreed impact measures. 

Think:Learn:Do, in partnership with VAL, are seeking participation from 10 youth organisations that are willing to work in partnership to develop, and implement a joint strategy to identify how local youth work improves outcomes for service users. 

Candidate organisations will need to offer young people a service that includes at least one intervention element that is designed to improve behavioural outcomes in a specific area, such as:

  • employability
  • sexual health
  • reducing risk taking
  • developing positive peer relationships

Participating organisations will receive a full, pro-bono, evaluation of their core service offer, and a set of evaluation tools (including outcomes frameworks and measurement tools) Great for preparing your commissioning proposals.
