Evaluation and Engagement

We understand that nonprofits are made up of dedicated people who are often stretched thin, and evaluation may not be the first priority. Whether you’re primarily interested in improving your programs or your organization has just received a grant that stipulates that you must have an outside evaluator, we can help by providing in-depth program evaluation and research services.

Whether you join us for logic model training or decide you need an outside evaluator, we will help you better understand how to gather and interpret your results to grow and improve your programs.

Products and Services

We can help you devise and implement a plan to effectively measure the impact of your programs and transform the data into actionable results.

JVA offers a variety of research and evaluation products and services:

Trainings and Events

Our two-day Evaluation Intensive will take you from the basics of logic models and evaluation plans all the way to complete data analysis.

There are lots of good reasons to take advantage of our program evaluation trainings and learn how to assess the effectiveness of your programs. First of all, your team wants to know it’s on the right track and your efforts are paying off. You need to be able to measure what methods work best. And evidence of your impact can be key to securing the funding you need to realize your goals.

Here at JVA, we will train you how to set up, carry out and report on your program evaluation. Our evaluation team includes both qualitative and quantitative experts to walk you through evaluation methods from the foundational theory of change to complex data analysis.

We offer a variety of customized trainings, including Creating a Culture of Evaluation.
