What did we do?

For the United States Botanic Garden, we directed the evaluation effort for the Garden’s volunteer training program.

We developed an evaluation framework and methodology, as well as original instruments, including focus group guides and two different surveys. In addition, we conducted a horizon scan involving five cultural organizations to identify best practices in volunteer training. Finally, we researched and developed an adult learning brief to share best practices in the field.

The final report featured analysis and research-based recommendations and will be shared with the national garden community at upcoming conferences.
