Community Expo: Celebrating Children, Youth and Families
This report is an internal evaluation of the Community Expo: Celebrating Children, Youth and Families. The report is intended as 1) a decision making tool for the Winnipeg COE Network members about whether to hold future Community Expos; 2) a reference document that may be used for detailed planning of a similar future event in Winnipeg, either by the Winnipeg Site of the COE, or by another organization; 3) a report to the Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Centred Prairie Communities and to the funders (Health Canada); and, 4) a tool to assist communities elsewhere in hosting a similar event. From the seed of the idea to the day of the Community Expo, this report describes the planning process in detail, including the challenges along the way. The evaluations completed by presenters provide excellent feedback about the event, and offer useful ideas for changes that could be made. The appendices include documents used in planning the event.
