Youth Focused Evaluation
A Topical Interest Group for Evaluation About Youth, for Youth, and with Youth
The purpose of the Youth Focused Evaluation TIG is to create an inclusive and participatory space for all evaluators (both adult and youth) that focuses attention on the practices and outcomes of positive youth development, and participation in a wide array of informal and formal contexts. The YFE-TIG speaks to the unique needs of youth and adult evaluators by promoting the development and use of tools and methods leading to practical and transformative outcomes for young people.
The YFE-TIG supports youth and adult researchers and evaluators to build best practices and methods related to:
Enhanced program quality
Youth/adult professional development, participation and voice,
Research ethics education
Youth participation in the AEA and YFE TIG, and
Co-creation of a knowledge exchange (online) community
Great seeing you in Cleveland, OH for Evaluation 2018!
