Community-based agencies receive growing pressure to implement “evidence-based programs.” That is, programs that have been studied and deemed “effective” by researchers. But what is considered evidence? And how can community-based agencies build their own evidence of what works in their communities? This webinar will examine these questions and explore the many opportunities and challenges that agencies face when conducting research and evaluations in community settings. Presenters will discuss strategies for agencies to maximize the utility and power of the data they collect.
