We’re not just a little into feedback. We eat, sleep and breath it. At the end of all workshops every teenager who participates in a program completes a feedback assessment form. We use this feedback to understand the impact of the work on young people’s well-being, assess our program’s suitability and accessibility and to make sure that we’re consistently adapting to the needs of the teenagers we meet. The feedback form we use was created based on our wellbeing model and looks to assess developments in teenager’s coping mechanisms and resilience, awareness and understanding of self and others.
In 2019, we will undertake a longitudinal research study that will allow us to show, on a large scale, Soar’s impact on the thousands of teenagers who have access to our programs. This will be our biggest research project to date and an exciting phase for Soar… Stay tuned!
