Brave Foundation Expands Measurement and Evaluation
April 17, 2023
Brave Foundation welcomes the appointment of Dr Kelsey Deane as Measurement, Evaluation and Learning Advisor. The appointment is reflective of Brave’s commitment to continuous improvement and desire to genuinely understand the impact of Braves work.
Kelsey has extensive experience in youth work and youth mentoring practice, program design, and evaluation research. Prior to this appointment, she was an academic at the University of Auckland in New Zealand where she maintains an affiliation and was Co-Director of a campus-based youth mentoring service for young people alienated from mainstream education.
CEO Jill Roche said, “Kelsey’s extensive experience and knowledge will enable us to assess and capture the impact of Brave’s work and to identify opportunities to continue to develop and enhance our program for the benefit of young parents and their children.”
“This appointment reflects Brave’s deep commitment to measurement, evaluation and learning and we are eager and excited to review what comes to light through her work,” Jill said.
“At Brave, we see and hear firsthand the difference that our program makes but we are looking forward to building a solid foundation of evidence, backed by Kelsey’s expertise.”
Since 2018, Brave Foundation’s Supporting Expecting and Parenting Teens program has supported young parents to achieve goals in the areas of education, workforce participation, health, and wellbeing, as well as providing support for those requiring financial or housing assistance.
