Assessment of Program Outcomes:  Dr. John M. Kelley Memorial Evaluation Institute

For over two decades the program evaluation spotlight has clearly been focusing upon the assessment of program results or outcomes. PCHF has a long-standing history in offering training and technical assistance to its grantees in the area of program evaluation as well as sponsoring its own outcome evaluations of key Foundation programs and initiatives.

The Phoenixville Community Health Foundation is requiring that every grantee organization complete the Assessment of Program Outcomes Workshop as a requirement for future grant funding. Between January 2017 and April 2019 PCHF has offered fourteen Assessment of Program Outcomes Workshops, at no charge, for current and prospective grantee organizations.

The Phoenixville Community Health Foundation will offer one last Assessment of Program Outcomes workshop. Friday, April 3, 2020

Assessment of Program Outcomes Workshop Overview

The workshop will feature a time-tested uniform model for identifying, articulating, and measuring program outcomes. In its one-day format, the training is experiential, featuring hands-on practical exercises, a defined six-step model, and an opportunity for participants to map their own evaluation plans specific to their organizations. Supporting methods and tools such as logic models and qualitative evaluation are also addressed. Tangible take-aways include an Evaluation Workbook, which provides background material, print and video references, and a one-page Outcomes Assessment Worksheet. The workshop will be offered as a one-day workshop.

This  will be the final opportunity to complete this grant requirement.
