Yellow Wood Associates, Inc. worked with John Gaventa at the University of Tennessee and Vicki Creed to prepare a workbook, training manual, and four-day workshop on participatory evaluation of rural Empowerment Zones and Enterprise Communities. Recipients of training included professional researchers and members of community-based learning teams from around the country. Provided advanced training for the same audience after several months of implementation through three national cross-site trainings.
The workbook is well written and the activities bring the learning points into perspective. It makes the prospect of leading others through the steps more easily manageable. - Lisa Lampmann, City of Watsonville Enterprise Community
