Beyond Checking the Boxes: A Discussion on Education Program Evaluations
Dec 13 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

As non-profit professionals with tight budgets and long lists of deliverables, we sometimes overlook the importance of stopping to evaluate the impact of our work. Evaluation is critical, however, to sustain the quality of the work and to justify what we do. Do you spend countless hours designing education programs and then, the day before the program, draft a survey type evaluation that concentrates on how the audience enjoyed the program and on assessing the teachers? Does your evaluation start and stop at the end of your training program? These are some common missteps in the process of evaluating training and development. This webinar will discuss the critical points at which you should evaluate your progress in the training design process, outline the types of information you should collect, and provide tips for how you should use the data you collect.

As a result of this webinar, you will be better able to:

  • Describe the importance of evaluating the education programs/trainings you offer with OVW funding;
  • Identify the key points in the training/education design process that you should evaluate your progress and outcomes;
  • Discuss the types of evaluations to use in each step of the training process that will respect your budget and provide the most useful and insightful results.

Freedom Network USA Human Trafficking Conference 2020
Mar 18 – Mar 19 all-day

Holding Space: Innovation and Values in Anti-Trafficking Work

The 2020 FNUSA Conference will take place on March 18-19 in Miami, FL. This year we will explore how anti-trafficking work has grown and evolved since the passage of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act in 2000. Twenty years later, survivors are receiving more compassionate and effective services and advocates have forged pathways to influence policy. Community leaders across the country are developing new approaches, tools, and partnerships to address human trafficking. These innovations are changing the way we work together and our collective impact.

However, some challenges linger. Survivors still fight for a seat at the table, collaboration remains difficult, and entire populations are overlooked and underserved. As awareness of human trafficking increases, prosecutions are down and human rights protections are being stripped away. Using conference sessions, networking time, and physical space, we will confront these challenges and build solutions that are intersectional, representative, and rooted in human rights.
