This manual is designed to help violence prevention organizations hire an empowerment evaluator who will assist them in building their evaluation capacity through a learn-by-doing process of evaluating their own strategies. It is for state and local leaders and staff members of organizations, coalitions, government agencies, and/or partnerships working to prevent sexual violence, intimate partner violence, youth violence, suicide, and/or child maltreatment.
 
The manual discusses seven steps an organization might take to hire an empowerment evaluator from preparing for the hiring process to assessing and sustaining the evaluation. Resources, worksheets, and sample documents are included to make the hiring process easier. The manual also includes “Field Notes,” documenting the experiences and lessons learned from CDC’s DELTA and EMPOWER grantees in hiring empowerment evaluators.
