EvalYouth Week: What is EvalYouth? by Bianca Montrosse-Moorhead
My name is Bianca Montrosse-Moorhead, and I co-chair EvalYouth, along with Marie Gervais and Khalil Bitar. I also serve as a liaison between the American Evaluation Association, EvalYouth, and EvalPartners. This week, aea365 is focusing on EvalYouth. Today, I will be talking about what EvalYouth is and introducing you to some of our rad resources.
- EvalYouth is rooted in the idea that an investment in those new to our field and an investment in the inclusion of youth stakeholders is an investment in Evaluation itself.
- EvalYouth, an EvalPartners initiative, has two overarching goals: (i) to promote Young and Emerging Evaluators (YEE) to become competent, experienced and well-networked professionals who contribute to evaluation capacity at national, regional and international levels; and (ii) to promote the inclusion of Youth and Young People (YYP) in evaluations conducted at the national, regional and international levels.
- You do not need to be a young or emerging evaluator, nor a youth or young person to be a member of EvalYouth. You simply have to be passionate about and committed to investing in the future of evaluation.
- EvalYouth is committed to reaching evaluators across the globe, and everything we do happens in more than one language.
