You want our work to make a positive, lasting impact.
To do this we are very interested in how to measure it!
We use piloting to innovate, test and learn before launching our programmes.
A foundational pillar of this is our asset based approach – young people and communities are at the core of what we do, they are our assets, and their input is embedded throughout ConnectFutures.
Our youth advisory board is our formalised way of incorporating youth voice into all of our programmes are empowered to consult, and co-design ConnectFutures’ output, including youth programmes that reach on average 40,000 young people nationally a year creating cohorts of confident, savvy young people in the face of challenging contemporary contexts and their transitions to adulthood. Measuring the impact – individual and systemic – of all this work will is improved through our evaluative development.
We evaluate all our programmes
We work with young people to build skills and confidence to navigate some of the most sensitive and contemporary challenges: disinformation, extremism, racism, exploitation, hate and violence.
We use creative and educational methods to address these issues, build resilience and capacity to stay safe and thrive through their transitions into adulthood.
We develop, test programmes to scales these approaches and maximise their impact.
To support young people to navigate complex, exploitive social environments and thrive. We create resilient, positive communities to make change together.
