This session will review how to write outcomes and impacts, building bridges to community benefits. We will cover examples of inexpensive techniques of gathering evidence, connecting it to existing research to build a case for funding. As well, we will review how to make program impacts obvious in logic models/theory of change diagrams.
Our objectives will be to:
1. Define success so it can be measured
2. Gather evidence of impact
3. Create Logic Models to communicate theory of change
