Evaluation Webinar Series, YouthREX

May and June 2016

YouthREX invites you to join a no-cost three-part webinar series on different elements of its approach to evaluation.

Our mission is to make research evidence and evaluation practices accessible and relevant to Ontario’s grassroots youth sector through knowledge mobilization, capacity building and evaluation leadership. Central to our approach is a nuanced understanding of ‘evidence’ that acknowledges the politics of evaluation and the need for evaluation processes and methods that reflect grassroots youth sector realities.

In this new webinar series, you will have a chance to engage in conversations with YouthREX’s academic directors, staff and key stakeholders on our Evaluation Framework, Customized Evaluation Supports (CES), and newly launched evaluation toolkit. They have all have been developed to support youth programs in Ontario to understand their impact.
