How We Build Evidence of Impact

The agency’s strategic evidence plan provides a roadmap for generating credible, relevant, and actionable information about the extent to which it is achieving its mission. 

At AmeriCorps, we view evidence building as an ongoing cycle, and incorporate the process into our work across the agency through four phases: innovation, implementation, improvement, and expanded impact.
