Logic models are a tool used by program leaders, funders, and managers to design, implement, and evaluate the success of a program or project. Logic models help build agreement and buy-in during the planning stage of a program, organize implementation strategy, and track outcomes in a manageable, clear blueprint. This hands-on workshop will walk participants through every aspect of using a logic model with time to build your own. Leave this workshop with a draft logic model for your program or organization, as well as materials that will help you create a clear plan for designing and tracking the outcomes of your work. After the program, participants will have the opportunity to schedule one-on-one appointments with the facilitator to review their logic model and get feedback!
