Evaluating your programme

Ensure programme quality and effectiveness:

Develop a plan to measure programme process:

  • Select indicators of programme implementation viability and volunteer fidelity, such as training hours, meeting frequency and relationship duration; and
  • Develop a system for collecting and managing specified data. „

Develop a plan to measure expected outcomes:

  • Specify expected outcomes;
  • Select appropriate instruments to measure outcomes, such as questionnaires, surveys and interviews; and
  • Select and implement an evaluation design.

Create a process to reflect on and disseminate evaluation findings:

  • Refine the programme design and operations based on the findings; and
  • Develop and deliver reports to program constituents, funders and the media (at minimum yearly or as specified)
