Session Abstract (150 words): 

As part of the AEA Conference program, each year, the YFE-TIG sponsors an off-site field trip, open to all AEA members, to a youth-focused organization/project in the host city.  During the  field trip, participants tour a facility or site to: 1) learn about the project or program; 2) spend some time in dialogue with the program staff to understand their needs; and 3)  offer measurement and evaluation advice.  In the past, we have had 20 plus members participate. The planned session will start during the lunch hour and participants will return to the conference by the second session following the lunch hour.  Transportation to the host site and other logistical arrangements are made by the YFE-TIG.  The field trip provides an opportunity for evaluators to put their evaluation skills to good use by offering advice in real-time to address the host organization's performance management and evaluation needs
