A logic model provides:
- A format for identifying what the program expects to achieve.
- A basis for monitoring activities.
- A method to document what the program intends to do and what it is actually doing.
The logic model helps maintain focus and program fidelity by linking project goals, objectives, activities, and performance measures. It clearly shows which activities should be carried out and for what purpose, as well as what data should be collected to keep track of program activities.
Darcy can include her logic model in her grant application to explain how her program will address rising juvenile crime in NW Devonville, and how she will demonstrate that the program is following this plan.
