Program evaluation is a valuable tool for program managers who are seeking to strengthen the quality of their programs and improve outcomes for the clients they serve. Program evaluation answers basic questions about a program's effectiveness, and evaluation data can be used to improve program services.

I think another important reason is that an evaluation also help to decide if it is the best use of the resources of an organization.

I see, apart from it, I guess the data can also show which parts need to be improved, right?

Speaking of the resource allocation policy of YDP, would you please elaborate a bit more? I wonder if all recognized community organizations can get funding from YDP.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
