Logic models can be intimidating. They can also be very informative and useful. And, they are increasingly required by funders to demonstrate the reasoning behind program interventions.

With this in mind, we recently conducted a training on basic logic models with members of the After-School Network of Western New York . Our aim was to demystify the term and concept, and break it down to its essential purpose: to present what a program/intervention will do and what will happen as a result.

Our Prezi presentation, which includes some examples applicable to after-school programs, is available here.

We received the highest compliment when Sean McCrossan, Education Director of Northwest Buffalo Community Center, commented: “You took a concept that can potentially be difficult to grasp, either regarding what its uses are…or, in what manner would an organization utilize it, and simply made it ‘understandable’.”

We look forward to continuing our work with clients to develop, revisit, and utilize logic models in a way that will strengthen their interventions and benefit individuals and communities.
