Girls in the Know works to educate and empower girls, together with those who love them, by providing tools to establish a strong sense of self. It hosts a four-part workshop series for girls and their trusted adults to encourage communication, promote positive behaviors, and support decision-making that facilitates a safe and thriving adulthood.
The Evaluation Center partnered with Girls in the Know to refine evaluation activities to align with funder requirements and increase understanding of how participant satisfaction changes over time.
Girls in the Know (GITK) brings together pre-teen and teenage girls, along with their trusted adults, in the Empowerment Workshop Series – a four-part workshop series to encourage communication, promote positive behaviors, and support decision-making that facilitates a safe and thriving adulthood. GITK was interested in refining its session-specific and program assessments to align with funder requirements and better understand participant satisfaction and change over time. In addition to the assessment review, GITK wanted to ensure that all programming connects to feasible, measurable outcomes.
The Evaluation Center team worked with GITK to review the Empowerment Workshop Series post-session surveys, redesign post-program surveys, and conduct evaluation planning. The review of post-session surveys focused on wording and question sequence, alignment of questions to funder requirements, and layout. Program curricula and learning objectives, funder requirements, and survey design best practices informed the redesign of GITK post-program surveys. The Evaluation Center and GITK developed an organizational evaluation plan that includes a logic model, an evaluation methods matrix, and evaluation methods. The evaluation team facilitated interactive sessions to develop the logic model and identify and prioritize a set of evaluation questions.
