As part of the project we have developed a series of resources. We hope youth workers, youth work trainers or lecturers, managers, funders, policy makers and others in the sector may find them useful. We welcome feedback and encourage continued discussion.
Valuing Youth Work – Research-informed practical resources for youth workers: Reflecting on the value and evaluation of youth work
Valuing youth work – Seven-evidence based messages for decision makers on youth work and evaluation
Additional youth work evaluation training resources
Evaluation reading list: We have started to compile a reading list on evaluation in youth work, for youth work students, lecturers and trainers. To kick start this, we asked across our networks for recommendations- some of the initial suggestions relate specifically to youth work and others speak to evaluation in community settings more broadly. We will not curate this list and hope it will continue to evolve into a useful resource.
Evaluation slides: We are working on a shareable/editable slide deck that suggests ways to use our data and the short film as part of a youth work training sessions.
