The workshop; led by Adam Shoemaker, an AmeriCorps Vista; will teach nonprofit personnel how to prepare to do an evaluation, identify a program's overall impact, use data to show program success to funders and better tell the story of their success.The forum will take place March 5 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Fathers Forever Coalition, on 16th Street. A free lunch will be served. Those attending must RSVP by noon March 1.
