In order to evaluate our shared reach and impact, Sinneave will provide you a survey link with your signed license that we would ask each attendee of Launch into Life! workshops to complete. The short survey will allow us to measure use, improve and update content and evaluate the impact of this material. A component of the survey will measure whether participants of workshop sessions met the intended objectives of the program (outlined in the objectives section).
We appreciate your support and efforts in seeking survey participation from workshop attendees as together they will influence potential revisions and the development of new content.
