Eval Cafe: Youth Engagement in Evaluation: The Students Commission of Canada’s Approach
October 10, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Students Commission of Canada is a national charitable organization that purposely works with others to ensure that young people’s voices are heard and valued. The SCC believes in a world where all young people transition into a positive adulthood.
The SCC leads a network called the Centre of Excellence for Youth Engagement, which focuses on bringing together youth, academics and organizations to generate and gather research on meaningful youth engagement. For the past 7 years, the SCC and CEYE have been supporting 300 youth serving organizations to effectively tell their story through rigorous evaluation. They use a shared database to provide customized evaluation supports for individual organizations. They also aggregate the data from individual organizations to identify trends that are occurring across the youth-serving sector. The SCC will present their approach and showcase some of the aggregated data at our next meeting.
