Increase Your Funding Through Program Evaluation

ID: 7170

How do you know if your work is effective? How would a prospective funder know whether your program is a good investment? The funder will never know unless you evaluate the effectiveness of the program. This workshop will explain how to complete simple and complex evaluations, how to select the outcomes you should measure and how to locate evidence based measures and intervention programs. Competition for funding is fierce. Use program evaluation to stand out from all other programs applying for grants. This workshop builds on Program Evaluation -An Opportunity, Not a Burden so it is the second in a two day series on program evaluation. It is highly recommended that those who attended Program Evaluation -An Opportunity, Not a Burden this season, or in the past, attend this complementary workshop. However, participants who do not attend the first Program Evaluation course are still encouraged to attend this one. This workshop does not qualify for NBCC (National Board for Certified Counselors) clock hours.

Program Evaluation -- An Opportunity, Not a Burden

ID: 7158

You value the work that you and your staff do. You provide services that help people in need and you do so in a conscientious manner. It is exciting work and you want people to know about it - not just funders and oversight agencies that "evaluate" you - but colleagues and people who might come to you for service. How can you connect with them in a way that will tell the story of what you do and do so in a convincing manner? In this workshop learn how to orchestrate a program evaluation that tells the story about the services that you deliver in a way that meets program goals and objectives, and demonstrates the possibilities for the future. This workshop does not qualify for NBCC (National Board for Certified Counselors) clock hours.

Strategic Management

ID: 7151

Nonprofit organizations differ from their for profit counterparts in one key way: dedication to the charitable mission. Strategic management starts with setting the organization's mission, vision, and values, and ends with a strategic agenda: an organic, vital, and living document that proactively guides leaders to a common preferred future. The process works to align governance, management, and staff in a single direction and with common purpose. Metrics ("what gets measured gets done") are discussed that support the accountability of the management to clients and to the governing body, and which keeps the process fresh and self-sustaining. The model is outcome driven, built on business principles, and reflects the belief that: "Nonprofit" is a tax category, not a state of mind. This workshop does not qualify for NBCC (National Board for Certified Counselors) clock hours.

Trauma Informed Programs: A Forum for Agency Planning and Change

ID: 7688

This workshop is designed for program administrators, supervisors and individuals who have a desire to become a trauma informed care setting, and who can affect systems change within their agency. We will set a foundation for systems change by reviewing how trauma impacts those we serve. Participants will review and utilize the elements of a trauma informed system of care as we perform an agency self-assessment of staff and program readiness to incorporate trauma into the treatment milieu. A SWOT analysis will begin your preparation for change by developing your strengths and needs into a "TO-DO" list: making growth toward becoming trauma informed painless, clear and meaningful. Through both small and large group discussion, we shall share strategies and boost your potential to create growth within your agency. Because sustainability is always a factor with change, we will develop plans to identify the trauma champions within your program structure who will provide that reinforcement and accountability. An important part of the process, we shall also review the role of care for the caregivers as we refine a supervision model that can be incorporated into your agency. Roll up your sleeves and be trauma informed! This workshop does not qualify for NBCC (National Board for Certified Counselors) clock hours.
