What is evaluation in the youth field?



The e-library of youth sector evaluation provides access to evaluation of youth policies and practices, with information on the intervention's effectiveness and their potential to be sustainable and replicated.

The e-library promotes:

  • policy learning and transfers,
  • replication of evaluation practices in the youth sector, including interventions in youth work and in other areas of public policy,
  • the increase in the quality of evaluations and exchanges in this area.

The e-library supports practitioners and decision makers, who are looking for inspiration to launch evaluation of policy, programme and practice interventions, develop new polices, programmes or projects, or to improve the quality of their work. As the needs of young people evolve even faster than the context of other public policies, the evaluation of youth policies, programmes and youth work practice are extremely valuable to support decision makers in amending and adapting interventions targeting young people to better answer their needs.
