This is still one of the best resources out there-an excellent framework for thinking about evaluation as a relevant and useful program tool.
Logic Models: Samples, Template
To see examples of Logic Models from other Creative Youth Development organizations around Massachusetts and to find a blank template to begin building a new model, please visit the web page of the Boston Youth Arts Impact Network. This is a comprehensive resource that will give you different approaches to developing and refining your logic model.
If you already have a logic model that you have created for the program in your YouthReach application you do not need to adapt it to fit any specific format requirements, except that it may not be more than 2 pages in length. If you are developing a new Logic Model we recommend you use this template. Please be in touch with program staff with any questions about logic model development.
Boston Youth Arts Evaluation Project
The BYAEP Framework (PDF) is the product of the three-year collaboration among Boston-area youth arts organizations Raw Art Works, The Theater Offensive, Hyde Square Task Force, Medicine Wheel Productions and ZUMIX. The framework we collaboratively developed reflects the extensive research, development, and piloting we conducted over three years and provides the basis for the evaluation tools used in our organizations.
