Performance Management Training Series

The Homeless Youth Capacity Building Project is excited to be offering a valuable opportunity for youth-serving organizations to learn and practice the concepts, strategies and tools of Performance Management.

Through the Series, participants will complete hands-on projects to learn how to:

  • use the Plan-Do-Check-Act Cycle to support ongoing program improvement

  • create useful program outcomes and indicators

  • develop process maps for key activities

  • work in teams involving a variety of stakeholders

  • collect, present, and analyze data in order to address challenges and make better decisions  

To supplement the learning, participants will receive up to $1,500 of capacity building support in the form of consulting, coaching and tools such as data collection software.

Thanks to generous support from the Corporation for National and Community Service, the Ahmanson Foundation, California Wellness Foundation, S.H. Cowell Foundation, Morris Stulsaft Foundation, and the Walter S. Johnson Foundation, the Performance Management Training Series is free of charge to all cohort participants. Travel stipends are available to participants for any travel over 40 miles round trip to attend in-person trainings.

The application for the 2013 Performance Management Training Series is closed. Please check back later in the year for information on future training series.
