Evaluations

The Mentoring Institute understands the value in using evaluations to measure successes and challenges, to promote optimal organizational performance.  Periodically conducting evaluations helps your organization to identify what is and isn’t working, and enables more efficient realization of individual and collaborative goals.

Evaluation is a process that critically examines a program. It involves collecting and analyzing information about a program's activities, characteristics, and outcomes. Its purpose is to make judgments about a program, to improve its effectiveness, and/or to inform programming decisions (Patton, 1987).

Evaluation offers both qualitative and quantitative data pertaining to your program's success or progress. Information accumulated from the evaluations allows clear picture of your organization’s impact, and enables you to effectively communicate this to others. Communication is critical for public relations, staff morale, and attracting and retaining support from current and potential funders.

The Mentoring Institute wants to help your company create a program evaluation, especially tailored to fit your unique program. Contact us now to learn more!
