Evaluating the Indigenous Youth Leadership Program (IYLP) is necessary to enable the Jobs Australia Foundation to continue to understand the value and impact of the program and continuously improve the model and curriculum.
During 2010/11 the Jobs Australia Foundation delivered the first IYLP. The evaluation of the program was undertaken by EMS Consulting. Two reports were produced the first in January 2011 after the first year of the program and the second in October 2011 at the completion of the program. These reports, their findings and recommendations are available below.
