ONLINE – ABCD: Measuring what matters! Is anyone better off?
How do we know our community work is making a difference and if anyone is truly better off as a result? During this 3 week series we explore asset based community development and participatory evaluation tools (using the Results Based Accountability™ (RBA) framework), to measure the social impact of local initiatives.
Join us for 3 immersive and interactive sessions that will introduce you to the fundamentals of asset-based community development (ABCD) and how participatory evaluation can measure community actions and outcomes.
“RBA and ABCD are complementary processes. RBA starts with the ends we want for our children,families and communities and works backward to the means that will get us there. ABCD provides a robust way of looking at means to get us there.” Mark Friedman
