M+19 Evaluation and IMS Walkthrough

Data collection Information Management Systems (IMS) are complex and detailed systems. They can be difficult to navigate, but they don’t have to be. Join Emily Bopp Karpuszka as she walks through the M+ IMS and provides step by step instruction on utilizing the system specifically designed for Youth Collaboratory’s Mentoring+ program sub-grantee partners.
We will also use this meeting as an opportunity to explore the evaluation tools we’ll use during this project to measure youth outcomes and match quality. The timeline for survey administration, as well as scoring and interpretation will be addressed. Questions are encouraged.

We strongly encourage case managers, data entry staff, and any other program or front line staff responsible for collecting and entering data to attend this webinar.
