PEER Associates is a small team of evaluators with diverse expertise. We provide customized, highly responsive, utilization-focused program evaluation and educational research services for organizations nationwide. We specialize in place-based education, environmental, and sustainability projects. In addition, we have background and expertise in community health and social justice. PEER clients include large and small non-profit organizations, grant-making foundations, institutions of higher learning, schools, and government agencies. We do this work because we value the missions of our clients and collaborators.
PEER Associates is committed to using a participatory evaluation process. It is our intention to help organizations better articulate their vision, align their resources and their rhetoric accordingly, and improve their programs based on evidence of program functioning and outcomes. We also seek to help organizations build their own capacity to reflect on and internally evaluate programs.
PEER Associates strongly believes in sharing evaluation methodologies, instruments, and results. We encourage our clients to participate in this when it is appropriate.
