YLabs needed a digital data collection and storage system to integrate across all its projects in the Bay Area, sub-Saharan Africa, and South Asia. The organization also sought input on how to measure and communicate the impact of their work in a way that would resonate with donors. YLabs’ vision is that all young people have the power to design a healthier, more prosperous future for themselves and their communities, and takes a data-driven approach to creating programs that work toward this vision.
By helping YLabs with its data use and KPI (key performance indicators) strategies, the FCF project team positioned YLabs to evaluate and scale their programs for different contexts. Key deliverables included creating a matrix of options outlining the pros and cons of each data collection tool, as well as a review of YLabs’ existing KPIs.
Impact on YLabs mission:
The tool will help YLabs convert a manual data collection process into a digital, streamlined one that better supports field workers who are collecting the data, as well as staff who compile and analyze data. The FCF project was part of a systemic overhaul currently underway
