Subject:Workshop Series on Becoming an Evidence-Based Program

Child Trends is hosting a workshop series for DC-based afterschool programs. Please see the information below and forward it to anyone who may be interested. Child Trends Workshop Series on Becoming an Evidence-Based Program We would like to invite you to participate in the Child Trends Workshop Series on Becoming an Evidence-Based Program. Our goal is to assist out-of-school-time programs that would like to develop – or further – an evidence base for their program. Each workshop will be led by research staff members with expertise in out-of-school time programs and will feature many of the resources Child Trends has developed especially for program providers (see: www.childtrends.org/LINKS). These Workshops are funded by the Alexander and Margaret Stewart Trust Foundation. The Workshops are specifically designed for senior-level staff of organizations with out-of-school time programs that have not yet been rigorously evaluated (through an experimental or rigorous quasi-experimental evaluation). The Workshops will be hands-on, small, and will provide practical steps providers can take to build their programs’ evidence base. Topics covered will include logic models/theories of change, types of evaluations and how they can be used, performance management, outcomes, and making evidence-based practices happen. We are excited for the opportunity to convene selected program representatives and assist them in addressing both the challenges and opportunities of growing the evidence base for their programs. Previous participants have expressed their enthusiasm in joining the workshop series. “These workshops have been amazing and have assisted me in understanding why evaluation is so important. The workshops have also fostered relationship between participants in this workshop series and have created excellent resources in the nonprofit community.” Please let us know as soon as possible regarding your decision to participate by contacting Tahilin Karver at tkarver@childtrends.org . Spots fill up fast! We look forward to hearing from you and hope you can join us for this exciting Workshop series!
