Eval11 Session 560: We Actually Did It, and You Can Too: Creating a Culture of Learning and Evaluation in a Multi-service Nonprofit [Handout]

Emery Creating a culture where nonprofit staff actually utilizes outcomes measurement and evaluation techniques on a regular basis is extremely challenging. The Latin American Youth Center (LAYC), a multi-service nonprofit in Washington, DC is an example of a nonprofit that has achieved this culture change. This roundtable allowed LAYC's Learning and Evaluation Division, the internal program evaluation group at LAYC, to share some of the lessons learned, challenges encountered, and techniques used during this multi-year process. We discussed the initial steps we took to convince staff to embrace evaluation concepts, growth of evaluation capacity within the organization, maintenance of the culture over time, and unexpected challenges. #Non-ProfitsandFoundationsEvaluation #InternalEvaluation #LeahGalvin #AnnKEmery #OrganizationalLearningandEvalCapacityBuilding #LatinAmericanYouthCenter #IsaacCastillo #YouthFocusedEvaluation #internal evaluation #2011Conference #Youth

Eval12 Session 634: Our Seven-Year Journey to Create and Maintain a Culture of Learning and Evaluation in a Multi-service Non-profit Organization

Shifting an organizational culture so that nonprofit staff actually uses evaluation results can be extremely challenging. The Latin American Youth Center (LAYC), a multi-service nonprofit in Washington, D.C., is an example of a nonprofit that has been working to achieve this culture change. One of the organization's internal evaluators shared: 1) How our roles have changed to respond to the organization’s evolving needs, 2) Our strategies for producing relevant information for all stakeholders, from funders to the Board of Directors to the program recipients themselves, and 3) Our methods of building evaluation capacity so that we’re partnering with program staff through the evaluation lifecycle rather than making decisions on their behalf
