Join us for a fall webinar series on evaluation as a strategy for building, improving, and funding creative youth development programs. <p> </p> 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. In response to this imperative, the National Guild for Community Arts Education will be presenting a four-part webinar series. The series will be chaired by Dennie Palmer Wolf and Steven Holochwost of WolfBrown, working in collaboration with Käthe Swaback and Gladys Hidalgo of RAW Art Works (Lynn, MA), along with Julia Gittleman and Ruth Mercado-Zizzo from the Youth Arts Impact Network in Boston. <p> </p> 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: <p> </p><ul><li>Webinar 1: Sept. 26 -- The Foundations of Creative Youth Development Evaluation</li><li>Webinar 2: Oct. 3 -- Stepping Up to Survey and Use Observational Data</li><li>Webinar 3: Oct. 17 -- Thinking through Comparisons</li><li>Webinar 4: Oct. 24 -- Partnering for Large-Scale, Quantitative Evaluation</li></ul><p> </p> The webinars will be interactive and include: 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.
