Most people know that program evaluation is important, yet they are intimidated at the thought of actually conducting one. It is important to be able to measure effectiveness and other indicators of performance in your program to help with fundraising and demonstrating the need for services. This Program Evaluation training will give you the practical skills to conduct an evaluation and take some of the fear out of the process!
The training will be delivered online over the course of 5 weeks, beginning on March 26. Each week, except for the introductory week, will include a facilitated webinar. Additionally, there are recommended readings and videos as well as written assignments. You should expect to spend about an hour per week on these in addition to attending the 75 minute webinar. CEUs will be awarded for those who complete all requirements.
This training is part of the NVAA Effective Management Series and like all of OVC TTAC’s trainings, there is no cost to attend.
All webinars are conducted from 3:00–4:15 p.m. (eastern time).
