New Webinar Series!

EvaluationCYD---Graphic.PNG

Join us for a fall webinar series on evaluation as a strategy for building, improving, and funding creative youth development programs. The growing strength of the CYD movement necessitates that programs, staff, partners, and funders re-think fundamental ways of doing business --program design, staffing, and evaluation to create more active and ongoing roles for young people as critical thinkers, designers, and decision makers. The webinar series is chaired by Dennie Palmer Wolf and informed by many voices from the CYD field including: Julia Gittleman, Steven Holochwost, Gladys Hidalgo, Ruth Mercado-Zizzo, James Miles, K├Ąthe Swaback and others.
