Canadian Empowerment Evaluation: Malton Community Project
Empowerment Evaluation Community Project:
Understanding the Early Malton
The Understanding the Early Years Malton project is guided by empowerment evaluation principles. It is an excellent example of the empowerment evaluation model in practice. Their work has been transformative, contributing to collective learning, democratic participation, and action. They have collectively helped to reduce social inequities.
The Malton project produced a ten-minute DVD documentary demonstrating how a community can work together using an empowerment evaluation model to improve the future of its young children.
The UEY Malton Report to the Community presents the projects accomplishments, the data from the project, and the future aspirations of the project from the community perspective.
For additional information about the project contact Dr. Paul Favaro, Chief of Research & Evaluation, Peel District School Board & York University.
