How to support secondary school transitions? A recent study conducted by SI examines the question from five thematic areas: career guidance, including marginalized youth, skills development, stakeholder engagement, and sustainability and scaling.
Learn about career services and interventions supporting young people in the Middle East and North Africa successfully transition through (and beyond) their secondary school years in this lessons learned blog about a USAID-funded study lead by Dr. Amy Porter at Social Impact.

Moving the Needle on Local Ownership in USAID/Vietnam Programming - Social Impact

Local ownership is vital to sustainability and long-term success in Development, but how do we get there? SI's Learns has been supporting USAID/Vietnam in its push for locally-led efforts. The team designed a spectrum to measure progress and set up projects for success in growing toward local leadership. Check out part 1 of 2 in this blog series, where Learns' Monalisa Salib introduces the localization spectrum and offers examples of its use in the design and procurement phases of the Program Cycle. Learn more here:

Development requires local ownership for long-term success and sustainability. We all know this, and if we’re being honest, we also all know it is a struggle. We wanted to help USAID and partners push a little bit more to get to greater local ownership; so much is already happening, but can we ma

Reframing Developmental Evaluation Cost Concerns - Social Impact

Donor and evaluation communities can often perceive developmental evaluations (DEs) as expensive. Cost was one of three frequently cited reasons for funders deciding against a DE, according to a study of all DEs conducted by USAID between 2010 and 2020. However, an examination of what stakeholders believe DE’s value to be, rather than its cost, reframes this approach as often cost-effective, worthwhile -- and for some programs -- indispensable.

Learn more about how reframing the conversation about cost around DE’s value introduces critical factors and ultimately enables funders and practitioners to make better-informed decisions about what type of evaluation fits their program’s needs in this blog previously published with USAID’s Learning Lab by Chris Thompson.

Developmental evaluation (DE) can be perceived as expensive within the donor and evaluation communities.[1] In fact, a study of all DEs conducted by USAID between 2010 and 2020 found cost was one of three frequently cited reasons for funders deciding against performing such an evaluation.

Join Social Impact on December 13, 2022 for a webinar introducing the CLA Maturity Tool for Implementing Partners. This webinar is part of Social Impact’s Evidence for Impact webinar series and will feature Social Impact presenters Monalisa Salib and Jessica Ziegler. Additionally, the webinar will feature guest speakers Lauren Hinthorne from USAID’S CLA team, Brian Bean from Winrock International, and Van Anh Nguyen from FHI360.

The Collaborating, Learning & Adapting (CLA) Maturity Tool has been used by USAID operating units since 2015. The tool enables staff to self-assess their current CLA practice and plan ways to improve their internal and external collaboration, organizational learning efforts, and adaptive management practices. Recently, we built on this resource to create the CLA Maturity Tool for implementing partners (IPs) to provide a version that speaks more directly to the experience of international and local organizations.

Come learn more about this new version of the CLA Maturity Tool. You will hear more about the original USAID tool, how we updated it, and experiences from two partners who have used it. You will also experience it for yourself.

Implementing the New USAID Policy Framework, Part 1 - Social Impact

USAID’s new draft Policy Framework provides opportunities to strengthen Program Cycle processes for greater inclusion and results, but it’s not the first time USAID has promoted localization.

“By optimizing Program Cycle processes – recasting them as opportunities rather than burdensome tasks – we can realize gains in localization and capacity development that have been on the development agenda for decades,” writes Elise Storck, Vice President and Senior Technical Advisor at SI.

In part one of the two-part series on implementing the new USAID Policy Framework, Elise interrogates each point in the Program Cycle to demonstrate how to expand the decision-making process to include key local players. Learn more: http://ow.ly/LB1b50KCR6N
