An Evaluation of the Agency Mentorship Program

This report was developed by Youth Research and Evaluation eXchange (YouthREX).

HERE'S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:
This report presents the final findings of the evaluation of the Agency Mentorship Program (AMP) initiated in February 2012 by For Youth Initiative (FYI). Funded by the Youth Challenge Fund, AMP was a three-year capacity-building program aimed at supporting the development of fledgling youth-led initiatives. FYI was keen to lead an independent evaluation of AMP for a number of reasons. Firstly, an evaluation is formative; it provides an ideal opportunity to learn about the development and implementation of an innovative model, and then draw from the findings to refine and improve the model as necessary. An evaluation is also summative, as it provides information on what has worked and identifies areas for improvement. The data collection for the evaluation of AMP was under-taken between July 2012 and May 2014 with data analysis and preparation of the final report completed in 2015.
