I’m going to start building an evaluation into every youth group outline:
What helped you?
What could have been more helpful?
I’ve done this at the end of retreats for awhile now, but it seems valuable to make it part of the week-to-week communities of students we work with too. How else do we level up the work we’re doing with these particular students at this singular time?
Don’t wait for a complaint. Invite it. Evaluate.
