OJJDP Youth in Action Series, Bulletin, 6 page(s)

Helps youth get started in evaluating their youth programs. This Youth in Action Bulletin describes why evaluating programs is important and how they can use their findings to check the program's impact and identify which parts need to be either modified or dropped to better achieve their goals. To conduct effective evaluations, youth should plan early by building the evaluation into their programs from the start, design the evaluations based on specific questions, collect data consistently and accurately, and use the findings to improve their programs. The Bulletin also lists organizations to contact and resources to consult for additional information. The Bulletin's writing and format are geared to a youth audience.
