Project Description

Data Orchard is working with Impact Consultancy to evaluate the national Youth Action Squad programme, which aims to increase the participation of young people in environmental activities and social action.

The £0.5m programme is being led by the National Council for Voluntary Youth Services in partnership with The Canal and River Trust, The National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs, and The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.

Data Orchard is leading on the quantitative aspects of the evaluation and measuring outcomes for young people participating in the programme. This has involved working with young people and using control groups for service evaluation.
