Welcome to the Evaluation Institute
The CYFAR PDTA welcomes you to the Evaluation Institute. The Evaluation Institute has three separate tracks that consist of two modules each. They are designed to compliment the experience you bring to your CYFAR projects. Depending upon one’s role in CYFAR, individuals can sign-up for one or all tracks.
Why this Evaluation Institute?
Currently the CYFAR evaluation of programs is not being done on a high quality consistent basis. The main idea behind the evaluation institute is to foster an overall culture of evaluation within and across CYFAR programs.
Main Goals of the Evaluation Institute
The main purpose of the CYFAR Evaluation Institute is to increase the capacity of CYFAR Sustainable Communities Projects (SCP) to effectively evaluate their programs. Through this process, participants will increase their understanding of CYFAR evaluation, identifying new tools and resources available for grantees, and identify new ways in which to improve the evaluation of CYFAR programs.
