As part of DYCD’s Practitioner Network, providers develop a Theory of Change (TOC) for their family engagement work. This framework is a guide for providers in developing clear outcomes for their work with families. This is an opportunity to reflect on agency mission and vision as it relates to creating more inclusive and family friendly environments and identified outcomes for their work with families. The outcomes were focused on the change or difference that happens because of the work that practitioners are doing in their agencies. Once providers identified outcomes, they looked at the necessary preconditions to help them get to these outcomes and focused on alignment between vision, mission, to outcomes and then to program and activities. As the conclusion of the Practitioner Network, providers developed a blueprint for their family engagement efforts. Below is a visual illustration of the TOC :
