Starting in Autumn 2016, Project Oracle, in collaboration with MOPAC, are offering a programme of free evaluation support to organisations working to reduce youth reoffending, or help young people to exit gangs.

What is the Youth Justice Cohort?

Successful applicants will be members of the Youth Justice Cohort. They will be supported to use the newly created MOPAC Outcomes Framework which recommends tools for measuring the progress young people make in key outcomes, related to reducing crime. They will also receive free training sessions and invitations to exclusive events throughout the year. The programme is designed to empower members by improving their ability to evaluate programmes in line with the framework and share ideas about effective evaluation.

A select group of 10 – 15 organisations will also receive bespoke one-to-one support to improve their evaluation capacity over the course of a year. This can include:

  • Creating a Theory of Change
  • Designing an evaluation plan
  • Support to analyse data and report on results
  • Validation at Project Oracle Standards 1,2 or 3.
  • A research placement to support an evaluation over several months
