It has been difficult to evidence the difference that youth work makes both to lives of young people and their communities. This has been a challenge for those working in the field. Transformative evaluation model is developed to help youth workers to meet this challenge. It is evaluation model which helps to convince stakeholders, in other world decision makers and funders, on the impact of the youth work.
