EvalYouth was formally launched at the EvalPartner’s 2nd Global Evaluation Forum held in Kathmandu, Nepal in 2015 by 23 young and emerging evaluators from several countries and regions.  The launch of EvalYouth was participatory, and it leveraged existing processes by taking advantage of the existing events and documents organized by many stakeholders within the framework of the International Year of Evaluation.

EvalYouth Growth Since 2015

Founding members in 2015 selected the following three priorities for EvalYouth, which became its main task forces:

  1. Task Force I focuses on promoting YEEs in VOPE activities, governance, and leadership;
  2. Task Force II focuses on the Global Mentoring Program in order to build individual YEE evaluation capacities;
  3. Task Force III focuses on organizing EvalYouth conferences and other e-learning events; and

In 2019, EvalYouth added a 4th task force, Task Force IV, which focuses on promoting youth-participatory and YEE-led evaluation.

EvalYouth task forces work directly in coordination with the leadership of the EvalYouth Global Network, namely the Executive Committee (ExCom) and Management Group (EYMG). More information in the Task Forces section of the website.

In addition to the four task forces, EvalYouth currently has 7 regional and 20 national chapters across the globe.  More information in the Chapters section of the website.
