Thrive Chicago & ASM – Building Logic Models to Drive Change
Thu, Mar 10 at 9:00 AM,Chicago, IL
Please join us for Thrive Chicago’s Organizational Support Training – focused on thinking through and creating logic models.
Logic models are versatile tools that can help with program planning, program management, and fundraising. The training, facilitated by After School Matters, will share the framework for developing a high level logic model including how to conduct a situation analysis, engage stakeholders, implement divisional work plans, and make organizational decisions. Participants will gain strategies and tools to begin the logic model development process. Presenters will share examples of materials, such as the logic model and a work plan template to help you get started.
This session is designed for providers who don’t currently have a logic model or would like to update or rethink their current version (programmatic and development staff may be especially interested).
All participants are encouraged to come willing to engage in shared learning and problem solving. We look forward to having you join!
Event will start at 9 with a casual networking breakfast. Training begins at 9:30.
