Creative Ways to Solicit Youth Input: A Hands-On Guide for Youth Practitioners

May 01, 2012
  • Description

To understand how our programs are doing, improve the quality of those programs and report to funders and other stakeholders, we collect information from a variety of sources: staff, parents, and the youth themselves. We often ask youth for input or feedback through surveys. Other common methods to get information on how our programs are doing include observations (such as teacher observations in a classroom) or assessments (such as standardized tests). This manual provides ideas for other, creative ways to get input from youth.
