Evaluation supports youth programs to do what they do, better. A youth program that is committed to youth wellbeing is reflective, willing to improve, change and grow and diligently ensures that its youth participants are experiencing the outcomes that the program is working towards.

“Through this program I have learned how to evaluate my program to in order to make service improvements to the program(s) we offer. That evaluation with youth can be more flexible than is often perceived. It is important to adapt it to the context, really work to include as many stakeholders as possible and be creative. I find this approach to evaluation much more relevant and interesting than how evaluation is usually presented (objective, detached, formal etc.)”
