The Evaluation Tool Basket was created by several of the CYCC Network’s founding members. It began with tools loaned to the Network by the Resilience Research Centre (RRC), and is being added to by other partners as new tools are developed.
The Tool Basket was designed to help programs and organizations complete their own internal evaluation. The tools are written in plain-language and there are numerous tools included so that each program or organization can choose which ones are relevant to them. The RRC is also available for consultation.
Why do I need to do an evaluation?
While you may evaluate your program for a variety of reasons, evaluations are most importantly a way to examine your program so that you know whether it is effectively doing what you want it to do and to help inform future decisions. Evaluations can also help support your argument for the need for your program when trying to secure funding.
