UPDATE 10/17/16: This event has been postponed. It will no longer be held on October 20th. We will update this page when we have a new date.

“How To Build Effective Youth Programs That Work at Scale,” a lecture by Robert Granger, EdD, former president of the William T. Grant Foundation.

As the need for evidence-based programming grows, staff and leaders at many youth-serving organizations still struggle to achieve impact. For those whose programs produce positive outcomes, there is often a desire to replicate the program to other communities.

This wide-ranging discussion will address:

  • suggestions for improving program development, particularly through connecting researchers and program leaders;
  • best practices from experienced leaders of foundations and federal agencies;
  • and the essential steps for programs to take to prepare for successful evaluation and scaling-up.

The event will be moderated by Kristin Anderson Moore, the lecture’s namesake and Child Trends’ senior scholar.
