Evaluations

Evaluation is a key element in the process of developing and maintaining a program. Some may be daunted by the prospect or feel it is not a good “fit” for what they are doing. However, the only way your chapter will know if it has met its goals is to use an evaluation tool. There are a variety of evaluations that can be used, starting with existing evaluations or grading done by the  partner school or agency.

 

The important thing is to continually ask, “Is this working?” and “How can we make this better?” An objective tool is necessary in order to discover the strengths and weaknesses of the program, no matter how simple or complex it may be.

 

One bonus of evaluating the success of a program is the boost in volunteer morale. If a volunteer feels she is part of a successful program, one that truly changes lives, she is more likely to continue being a valuable volunteer.
