Measuring Youth Work Outcomes - Practical Models

One of the most challenging questions for youth workers is ‘How do you know you are making a difference to young people?’ This one-day course will be held on Thursday 16 July 2015 at Sherborne Area Youth & Community Centre, Dorset.

It will be an opportunity to learn more about current thinking on assessing the impact of youth work, and look at ways in which you can demonstrate your impact on young people who get involved with your youth work projects.  As a result of the day, you should be better equipped to provide evidence of the impact of what you do, and able to explain more clearly the reasons why your youth work makes a difference to young people’s lives’. 

Follow the links for the flyer and the booking form.  Email your booking form to Jane Shipton by Monday 6 July.
