Beyond Boxes – Black, Mystery and Magic – Understand and Use the Theory of Change for your Programs
March 9 & 10, 2017
Centre for Social Innovation - Regent Park, 585 Dundas Street East, Meeting Room #2

Theory of Change describes the theory (or set of assumptions) that explain the steps that lead to the long-term goal of interest and the connections between program activities and outcomes. This advanced two-day workshop will describe concepts related to theory of change, and apply the concepts discussed to enable participants to develop program theory including theory of change and action. The concept of contribution analysis will be described in day two, and applied to the theory of change example. Participants will be engaged throughout the two-day workshop in interactive activities for an active learning experience.
