Foróige has embraced evaluation! Young people are benefiting from their engagement in our clubs and programmes.The outcomes that young people are gaining are tangible, realistic and worthwhile. This is great news for us as staff and volunteers, great news for our young people and great news for our funders. All of the time you invest working with young people is paying off. Young people are doing better because of the time you give and now we have real results that back up our work. The time that young people voluntarily spend with us does lead to better outcomes for them.
The UNESCO Child and Family Research Centre in NUI Galway in partnership with Foróige have developed an evaluation resource to support staff in carrying out qualitative and quantitative evaluations in their projects.
The UNESCO Child and Family Research Centre, National University of Ireland, Galway have carried out research on the Big Brothers Big Sisters programme on behalf of Foróige. The results are in!
This is Foróige’s new Charter of Rights in poster style. It was put together by young people. The poster can be displayed and discussed with young people. With these rights go responsibilities – so the Charter will only work if everyone takes responsibility for respecting them with each other.
