Course Description

This session will draw on YouthREX’s extensive experience supporting youth programs across Ontario to illustrate how logic models can be a useful tool that guides program planning and evaluation of a youth program. The workshop will be highly interactive and include a hands-on logic modelling activity. We will provide participants with tools, templates, and resources for undertaking logic modelling on their own.

A logic model is an excellent tool for mapping out all the activities and objectives of a youth program and connecting these pieces to measurable outcomes for young people. Logic models help us see how individual parts of our work are connected to a bigger picture and purpose.

To get the most out of this workshop, we recommend that participants come to the session with a program to work on so there can be an opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills directly.

Date: November 7th, 2019, 6PM – 9PM
