I am Khalil Bitar (EvalYouth Vice-Chair). Along with Bianca Montrosse-Moorhead and Marie Gervais (EvalYouth Co-Chairs), I am very glad to have connected with all of you throughout our recent sponsored week. During the week, we presented EvalYouth, its achievements so far, and our plans for the near future. Despite the prominent work EvalYouth has achieved thus far, there is still more work to do. EvalYouth hopes to build on our successes to achieve a lot more in 2017 and 2018. Today, I’d like to tell you more about how to engage with EvalYouth.
During our sponsored week, you learned about the work of Task Force 1, Task Force 2, and Task Force 3. We plan to start a fourth task force in 2017 focusing on youth inclusion in evaluation. To do all this, we need the engagement of more members who are passionate about the future of Evaluation.
There are multiple ways to engage with EvalYouth:
- Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how do you like to be involved;
- Join EvalYouth’s mailing list and received the network’s news, opportunities and other announcements;
- Check EvalYouth website; or
- Follow EvalYouth on social media: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube.
Take a moment to read EvalYouth’s Concept Note, which details the network’s goals and objectives, governance structures, and a lot more.
Bianca, Marie, and I hope that we were successful in shedding light on EvalYouth and its work during EvalYouth week on aea365. We very much look forward to hearing from you!
