Explore methods to evaluate library programs that take you beyond attendance numbers and surveys. We'll look at ways to gather meaningful feedback from both children and their caregivers. And finally, we'll share ideas for how you can use the information you gather in your program evaluations. This is one in a series of webinars presented by the Managing Children's Services Committee.

  • Choose evaluation methods that will lead to meaningful and useful feedback
  • Explore evaluation models from nonprofits, schools, and other spaces
  • Collect feedback not just from caregivers, but also directly from children
  • Use the information gathered to improve staff evaluations and to encourage staff to make meaningful changes to programming
  • Advocate for youth services using the feedback you collect
