Every organization expressed deep gratitude for the Get Moving fund and its role in supporting their work. Get Moving has helped numerous organizations in Seattle provide fun, engaging and culturally-relevant activities, while building strong friendships and communities throughout the process. The organizations are deeply invested in the success and longevity of the Get Moving fund. These themes are taken directly from our conversations with grantees; while they don't not capture all the wisdom and detail of these conversations, it can provide general insight into the experience of grantees involved with Get Moving.,For evaluation, Get Moving grantees appreciated a shorter survey, as well the guides for focus groups and interviews that we piloted at their sites. Focus groups, interviews, and possibly arts-based evaluation tools and video testimonials may be options that can be personalized for each grantee to be culturally-appropriate and welcoming approaches to evaluation.,Our work to conduct this program evaluation project involved the following major steps:,We chose 30 cities like Seattle in size. Then we conducted online/phone research to learn if Parks & Rec in these cities had initiatives like Get Moving.We asked about 1) grant-offering programs, 2) community-based, culturally-tailored programs, and 3) peer-to-peer structure.,CEA INTERVIEW,We consulted with experts on community-based methods and youth-friendly evaluation tools. Then we improved Get Moving's existing survey and summarized 2016 data. We also designed new evaluationtools including focus groups, individual interviews, and arts-based activities, and packagedall tools into one single "toolkit", complete with user guides.,Our evaluation work drew conclusions in different contexts:,We piloted (tested) the toolkit with grantee leadership and members to see what worked and what didn't. Based on what we heard during the piloting process, we 1) modified our toolkit, 2) summarized our findings, and 3) created some Action Steps that Get Moving can take to better support grantees.,PILOT FINDINGS,We compiled a variety of evaluation tools ranging from a standard survey, interview and focus group to arts-based evaluation tools. We were unable to pilot any of the arts-based tools, but our findings from piloting the other evaluation tools is discussed in this section, organized by grantee organization.,Lao Women Association,Sea Mar,Vision Loss Connections,HOME,Lakema Bell,Limitations,Overall,THE GRANTEE EXPERIENCE,01,03,02,Get Moving allowed us to do more to serve our community,This grant allows us to run culturally-appropriate exercise programs that help people in our community feel comfortable exercising,The programs are more than just exercise - it is a social time for us to be together as community,HOME,Feedback from Grantees about the Evaluation Process,THANK YOU!,1,HOME,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,4,5,6,HOME,1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,4,5,6,HOME,1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,4,5,6, Back to Grantees , Back to Grantees , Back to Grantees , Back to Grantees , Back to Grantees , Back to Grantees , Back to Grantees ,6.1 Hire additional paid staff to support Get Moving and ensure implementation of these recommendations. ,2,HOME,WHAT COMES NEXT,3,4,5,1,Recommended Action Steps for Get Moving,6,6.
