The Childhood Bereavement Changemaker (CBC) initiative allows participating organizations access to a unique, sequenced, evaluation training model. The model includes interactive workshops, expert consultation, program evaluation resources and templates, and peer networking. After fully engaging in this learning process, organizations will be equipped with data to inform planning, influence change, increase funding, and enhance overall impact—ultimately ensuring bereaved children in their community have the care they need.
Selected Childhood Bereavement Changemakers (Changemakers) will participate in a series of four two-hour workshops in preparation for completing capacity building activities and templates. Between workshops, Changemakers will participate in group and individual technical assistance sessions with the Judi’s House/JAG team to support these activities. A Readiness Assessment will estimate each interested applicant’s current evaluation capacity. Changemakers will become part of our extended alumni network. This network of partners and collaborators supports organizations tackling similar obstacles to create a broad learning community dedicated to elevating evaluation practice and data utilization in the field. Offered at no cost to participants, the initiative provides selected Changemakers unparalleled support and continuing education credits where applicable.
