Evaluate Your Progress

Once you have started your youth council, we recommend that you evaluate how well your program is operating as a way to further strengthen it. Evaluations can be conducted in different ways, such as collecting feedback from members. Evaluations may also help your city to design a Youth Master Plan as a next step on the path to integrate the youth council in the local community.

  • Questions to Consider

    • What kinds of quantitative and qualitative metrics are needed for evaluation?

    • What have been successful elements of the implementation?

    • What has made these successes possible?

    • How can we improve the youth council and how it is organized?

    • How has the youth council impacted the community?

  • How to Conduct the Evaluation
