I’m pleased to announce another great learning opportunity for nonprofits. I have been collaborating with Darlene Hall, Ph.D., from Intersections Consulting to deliver hands-on program evaluation workshops to a few of our key partner organizations. Darlene also delivers these workshops to the larger nonprofit community and recently announced new program evaluation workshop dates.
This is a two-part training designed for nonprofit leaders who want to strengthen their skills in understanding the role and purpose of evaluation. Leaders will have a chance to identify obstacles to the evaluation process, and learn ways to create an evaluation culture inside their organization, and learn about methodology, data collection tools, and basic analysis. The two-part training includes opportunities for hands-on work on logic models, developing a evaluation plan, including an outcomes-based evaluation plan, and question development. In order to keep the trainings interactive, participants will learn in a small group setting. Trainings are held in the community in public transit-accessible locations in downtown San Francisco and downtown Oakland. In these economically challenging times, Darlene tries to keep registration costs reasonable and accessible for nonprofits. So, it only costs $50 to attend one workshop and $90 to attend both. Of course it’s recommended that you attend both in order to get as much as possible from the experience. The dates, times, and locations of the workshops are listed below.
5/20/10 Camp Fire (405 14th Street, # 204, Oakland) 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
