Outreach and Recruitment is a Science! Innovative and Effective Methods for Recruiting Hard-to-Reach Youth

Who should attend: All staff, YWD strategy

Date: Tuesday, March 22, 2016

Time: 9:30AM-12:30PM

Location: Valencia Gardens – 390 Valencia St. Community Room, San Francisco, CA 94103

 

I’m talking about our program to youth, why aren’t they coming? It feels like everyone should know about our services by now, so why does it seem like people still don’t know?! Truth is, you can talk about your program or services till you’re blue in the face, but getting young people to respond to the outreach effort is the hard stuff! Successful outreach and recruitment involves intentional practices that are developed specifically for a target population, that yield results and can be evaluated for impact.

In this workshop you will:

  • Conduct an analysis of your program’s target population and tie it into an analysis of your current outreach practices.
  • Learn about innovative approaches, including street based outreach, participant driven recruitment, and marketing through social media.
  • Learn how best to evaluate outreach methods.

 

*Note: Participants should bring the following information about their program:

  • Description of target population
  • Number of people who need to be reached AND number of people who need to be active participants (the number is not usually the same)
  • Current outreach strategies, if any.

 

Hosted by Pathways Consultants, Facilitated by CHALK Youth and Staff
