This article is the result of a research on youth organizations and their worthiness. You can find two main sections on this page: a short literature review on roles of youth organizations and a grid developed specifically to assess their worthiness. To evaluate your young organization, you might want to print the table and try to provide you own level of satisfaction to each of the questions included in it (ignoring the results of study data appearing in the table).
This article provides a self-evaluation tool to assess the performance or utility of your "existing and forming" collaborative groups. You can find two main sections on this page: a short literature review on collaboration and the collaboration checklist (with its terms being defined and guidelines for interpreting your results). You might want to print the checklist section and distribute it to other collaborators.
