The John Burton Foundationâ€™s Homeless Youth Capacity Building Project is pleased to present an interactive training on the Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) model of evaluation.
Does evaluation and assessment seem like a funder-driven chore that has little application for your organization? Or is evaluation currently conducted by consultants or one or two staff members disconnected from direct program delivery? If so, or if youâ€™d just like to learn more about a very effective model of evaluation, we encourage you to attend this free training.
The CQI process is data-driven, team-led, and has a practical focus on improvement at all levels of the organization and service delivery. It provides a simple, cyclical framework that empowers all staff to take responsibility for assessing effectiveness in areas of their control, and to develop creative solutions for improvement.
Learning objectives for this training include:
- Learn the elements of CQI and how it can impact an organization
- Learn about the Plan/Do/Check/Act cycle
- Learn how to identify elements to measure and tools for measuring
- Learn how to create teams to take on responsibility for assessment and improvement
This training will combine presentation of information with opportunities for active participation.
Presenters are Mary Jo Ramirez, Â Program and Development Director with the California Family Life Center, and Oscar Wolters-Duran, Project Coordinator for the Homeless Youth Capacity Building Project and strategic planner and evaluator with Blue Thistle Consulting.
