The California Coalition Against Sexual Assault is pleased to announce the following three trainings for RPE Grantees and members of the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence.

WHEN: Tuesday, March 22, 2011, from 10 AM to 4 PM

This is a repeat of the “Measuring Sexual Violence Prevention Efforts” training held on May 19, 2010, in Sacramento.

All of California’s Rape Crisis Centers (RCCs) and Domestic Violence Programs are actively engaged in prevention efforts, assisted in part by the Rape Prevention & Education (RPE) funding provided by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).

This training will provide prevention educators and their supervisors with the opportunity to develop practical, program-specific, and integrated evaluation tools that will increase our ability to measure program effectiveness and reduce the cost in time and other resources to CDPH.

To prepare for this training, attendees should review the eLearning units of the previous Logic Model and Evaluation web conferences.
