Evaluation of short- and long-term programs and other organizational activities such as workshops is critical in order to continually focus on program improvement. This is a fundamental part of ensuring that programs are of high quality and are of benefit to clients. Arbor has conducted over 50 evaluations for these purposes. Just a few examples of these projects include:
- Evaluation of “Jessie’s Hope” Men’s Health Group for Men with Disordered Eating
- Evaluation of the School-Age Children and Youth (SACY) Substance Use Prevention Program
- Implementation Evaluation of the “Seeds of Empathy” Program
- Evaluation of the B.C. Cancer Agency’s “Stop Smoking Before Surgery” material
- Evaluation of “Respectful Relationships”: A School-Based Violence Prevention Program
- Evaluation of the B.C. Cancer Agency’s Colon Cancer Screening Program
- Evaluation of An Aboriginal-Focused Program Model for Women and Children Fleeing Violence.
