<p>This webinar is the first in the four-part series, Evaluation as a Strategy for Building Creative Youth Development, which will examine evaluation as a strategy for building, improving, and funding creative youth development programs. The growing strength of the creative youth development movement necessitates that programs, staff, partners, and funders re-think fundamental ways of doing business --program design, staffing, and evaluation to create more active and ongoing roles for young people as critical thinkers, designers, and decision makers. Across the series participants will build four sets of vital strategies by examining examples from the work of other CYD organizations and reflecting on their own practices. You can register for a single webinar or sign-up for all!</p><p> <p/><a href="https://www.tfaforms.com/437637?tfa_9=70136000000W7W1">Sign up for the entire webinar series</a>. <p> <p/><p>In our first webinar, The Foundations of CYD Evaluation, we will begin by exploring the basic principles of creative youth development and their implications for evaluation. From there, we will examine how an organization builds the foundation for doing effective evaluation: developing an organizational story, building a logic model or theory of change, developing powerful infographics, and creating a culture of inquiry that includes young people as full partners. The webinar series is chaired by Dennie Palmer Wolf and informed by many voices from the CYD field including: Julia Gittleman, Steven Holochwost, Gladys Hidalgo, Ruth Mercado-Zizzo, James Miles, Käthe Swaback and others.</p><p> <p/><p>This webinar and the entire series will be interactive. You can expect: 1) pre-assignments that will alert you to the big ideas, prepare you to examine your own current practices, and allow you to send in questions ahead of time; 2) an exchange of distinctive perspectives from the presenters; and 3) ample time for audience questions.</p> <p> <p/><p>We encourage programs to support teams of participants in order to sustain the inquiry and conversation between and beyond the individual sessions .All materials will be sent to participants in advance of each session.</p><p> <p/><p>Upcoming webinars in this series include:</p><ul><li>Stepping Up to Survey and Use Observational Data (Oct. 3)</li><li>Thinking through Comparisons (Oct. 17)</li></ul>
