Sparking Volunteerism in Ontario: An Evaluation of Spark Ontario

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

HERE'S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:
This evaluation report reviews the SPARK Ontario Legacy Initiative with a primary focus on the www.findmyspark.ca website. Find Help Information Services partnered with York University to conduct an evaluation of SPARK Ontario. Given the breadth of the objectives set out by the initiative, a mixed-methods evaluation approach including both quantitative and qualitative methods was chosen as the most appropriate approach for assessing progress and identifying areas for improvement. The evaluation strategy, approved alongside the initial timeline for the initiative, involved both a process and outcome evaluation.
