Engaging Various Levels of Stakeholders in Grant-Mandated Evaluation of Community-Based Organizations 

11-13-2015 09:39

These materials are from the Evaluation 2015 session. How can I build stakeholder interest in funder-mandated evaluations of a complex, multi-site program? During this session, participants will explore this question using the Community HealthCorps AmeriCorps program as an example. Community HealthCorps AmeriCorps members serve in independent organizations nationwide, giving stakeholders some power to repudiate funder-mandated evaluations. To further add to the program’s complexity, each placement site focuses on different health needs and has a unique program implementation model. The discussion component will engage breakout groups in a "hack-a-thon" to discuss these and other contextual factors in relation to engaging the needs and interests of a particular stakeholder level, such as a local program coordinator, Program Site leadership, or direct service volunteer.
