This initiative allows participating organizations access to a unique, sequenced, evaluation training model. The model includes interactive workshops, expert consultation, data collection resources, 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.
Three separate cohorts of eight to 10 Childhood Bereavement Changemakers (Changemakers) will participate in a series of four workshops. Between workshops, Changemakers will participate in group and individual technical assistance with the Judi’s House/JAG team. A Readiness Assessment will estimate each interested applicant’s current evaluation capacity. The Judi’s House/JAG team will use this information to match each training cohort on key evaluation competencies and benchmarks. 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 data in the field. Offered at no cost to participants, the program provides selected Changemakers unparalleled support and continuing education credits where applicable.
