Build Your Program Evaluation Capacity

The Outcomes-Based Program Evaluation Institute

The Outcomes-Based Program Evaluation Institute (OBPEI), sponsored by The Miles Foundation and The Morris Foundation, provides organizations with the knowledge and skills to evaluate program efficiency and effectiveness. As a result, you’ll fill a critical knowledge gap for your organization to help make program improvements for an even greater impact. In turn, you’ll be able to demonstrate to your stakeholders that your programs are working.

The OBPEI consists of four in-class sessions and eight hours of one-on-one coaching with program evaluation consultants. Participating organizations will design an evaluation framework for one program that includes a theory of change model, a logic model with goals and indicators and a data collection plan. 

Between sessions and coaching meetings, participating organizations are expected to complete homework assignments that contribute to the development of their program’s evaluation framework.

“The Outcomes Institute was a phenomenal experience for me as a professional. I found that as a professional I loved to dream up goals and outcomes but never understood a language or structure for the process.  The Outcomes Institute gave me a language and structure that fed my passion and allowed execution. Attending the Institute jump-started immense growth within our agency!”
