Designing Metrics for Program Evaluation

September 15 @ 1:00 PM4:00 PM EDT

Designing Metrics for Program Evaluation
We’re online! This workshop will be presented online through Zoom. All registrants will receive the access link and password via email the day before the event.

You know that your organization’s programs are great, but how do you help others understand your impact? Thoughtful program evaluation can help you successfully share your impact with funders, donors, volunteers, and your board. It can also help you design programs to draw a larger audience to your mission.

Evaluation doesn’t have to be overwhelming. There are practical tools and strategies available that can help you integrate evaluation into your programs. This session will help you learn how to identify the questions you want to ask and the data you need to collect to effectively evaluate your programs.

This workshop will cover:

  • The importance of program evaluation
  • What types of evaluation are most helpful to your organization’s needs
  • How to develop your own evaluation tools
  • How to embed evaluation metrics into your systems for sustainability

Price: $60
Free for GVSU students/staff/faculty

Deadline to Register: Wednesday, September 9

This workshop will be a live, interactive experience. It will not be recorded or available to registrants after the end of the live session.
