PerformWell partners Social Solutions, the leading provider of performance management software for human and social services, and highly regarded research organizations Urban Institute and Child Trends are hosting an hour-long webinar on Thursday, June 21, from 3:00-4:00pm EDT. The topic is improving outcomes for sex education programs by using the resources available on PerformWell, an online reference that provides research-based information, performance indicators, measurement techniques and questionnaires, and performance management strategies.
With the launch of PerformWell earlier this year, Child Trends, the Urban Institute and Social Solutions made available more than one hundred surveys/assessments, along with information to help nonprofits measure outcomes and improve service delivery.
“PerformWell offers the right tools for improving the chances of successfully reaching more youth and making a true impact with sex education programs,” said Patrick Lester, Vice President of Social Impact at Social Solutions. “Our intention is to showcase how PerformWell can bring the concept of performance management to life for any organization that runs these types of programs.”
