How do you get your big idea to a clear set of processes and outcomes? This workshop will teach you how to systematically think through your project’s planning, implementation, and evaluation by teaching you how to construct a logic model. Many grant applications now require logic models, but whether required or not, they are an invaluable way to stay organized and successful.  Workshop #3 was hosted by Dr. Tamara Young of NC State.
