Measuring sexual violence prevention efforts: A hands-on training
Wednesday, May 19, 2010
10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Sheraton Grand Hotel, Sacramento
All of California’s Rape Crisis Centers and Domestic Violence Programs are actively engaged in prevention efforts, assisted in part by the Rape Prevention & Education (RPE) funding provided by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).
This training will provide prevention educators and their supervisors with the opportunity to develop practical, program-specific, and integrated evaluation tools that will increase our ability to measure program effectiveness and reduce the cost in time and other resources to CDPH.
To prepare for this training, attendees should review the eLearning units of the previous Logic Model and Evaluation web conferences.
By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
- Describe how evaluation tools will help them to more effectively assess the impact of their programs.
- List at least three program specific short and intermediate term outcomes in their logic models or objectives.
- Demonstrate an understanding of creative evaluation tools by identifying at least three strategies they can incorporate into their individual programs.
Registration for this training is limited to staff and volunteers at California Rape Crisis Centers and to member agencies of the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence, and is free. Registration closes on Friday, April 30, 2010.
In order to give a diversity of California agencies an opportunity to be represented at this workshop, we are limiting registration to one (1) person per agency. If space permits, we will accommodate more participants from a wait list.
