How can sex education programs for youth measure outcomes and continuously improve their effectiveness? Join us for a webinar during which we will explore how practitioners can take advantage of new PerformWell content – including surveys/assessments – relevant to sex education. With the launch of PerformWell earlier this year, ChildTrends, the Urban Institute and Social Solutions made available more than one hundred surveys/assessments, along with information to help nonprofits measure outcomes and improve service delivery. This webinar marks the publication of new content in the program area of sex education.


Mary K. Winkler will moderate this session featuring Adam Tenner who will share how Metro Teen AIDS manages performance in practice. Mary Terzian, Patrick Lester and Ingvild Bjornvold will discuss how others can make use of the tools available in PerformWell to follow in Metro Teen AIDS’ footsteps and become more performance driven and improve their likelihood of success in preventing teen pregnancy and the transmission of sexually transmitted infections.
