Evaluation Consultant

Connect Local & Global, Inc.

I offer extensive experience in evaluation in both the immigrant and refugee-serving and international development sectors, including participatory evaluation and capacity-building in evaluative thinking. 


Mentors are researchers, community members, and staff that are available to either volunteer or be hired for evaluation support, consultation and guidance*

Things to consider...

Ask yourself how much support and guidance you need?
One conversation? A few days? For the entire project?

What is your CAPACITY?
Do you have the funds to hire a mentor, or are you limited to those volunteering their time? 

Is the mentor's previous experience relevant to your proposed evaluation?

Take a look at this helpful checklist for more tips on working with external researchers!
