Leading youth charities to unite to ensure more practitioners support young people to thrive
17 November 2021
In Spring 2022, two leading youth charities - the Centre for Youth Impact and YMCA George Williams College – intend to unite to improve the quality of support and opportunities for young people in the UK.
The Centre for Youth Impact is the learning partner for the Act for Change Fund which supports youth-led social change. This is the first of a series of Week Notes, written by the Centre's Mary McKaskill about the learning and insight coming out of the Act for Change Fund Learning Project.
Inspired by The Centre for Education and Youth's recent evaluation of The Brighton Streets Project, Dr Tania de St Croix takes a look at the role youth-centred evaluation can play in demonstrating the impact of detached youth work and help shed light on the 'everyday and remarkable'.
This month, in a guest blog from across the pond, DrCharles Smith from our long-time partners QTurn reflects on the ways compassion can be integrated into evaluation, and what this means for both practitioners and evaluators.
