Why Focus on Impact?
Environmental and outdoor learning has a powerful story to be told, but traditional ways of doing so have often fallen short of demonstrating individual and community impact. Without being able to effectively tell and share this story of impact, the field has often struggled to secure both financial and policy-based support. As a result, far too many communities go without access to quality EE initiatives to help improve the lives of individuals and their community.
CAEE has been working with Point b(e) Strategies and practitioners around the state to understand what outcomes eeOrganizations and educators most want to measure and compile tools to help YOU measure your impact and tell your story. The eeEvaluation tools selected focus on impact rather than process. You may want to consider adding additional components to your evaluation to support program improvement.
