Evaluation shows you how well you are meeting your clients’ needs, but it can be hard work to choose the best evaluation methods. SEA helps our clients customize an evaluation plan and data collection system that works. After your data is collected, we will help you analyze and present it in a meaningful way.

SEA in action

Since 2008, SEA has completed hundreds of successful 21st CCLC evaluations.

Using numbers and stories, SEA showcased the improved math scores and student behavior that resulted from a school district’s grant funded program.

SEA conducted site visits and focus groups at an urban high school. The program director used this valuable feedback to improve the after school program and also understand how much of a personal impact he was making on student participants.

SEA surveyed participants at a community Science Fair. Outcomes were shared with funders in visually interesting ways and used to raise the value of future events.

SEA helped an after-school provider zero in on the role school and program attendance played in their students’ success.

A Lehigh Valley social services non-profit needed a way to collect and manage data more effectively. SEA designed a data collection tool that helped them produce monthly reports for their Executive Director, their Board and their funders.
