Measuring Our Impact

Whenua Iti Outdoors uses the outdoor environment as a medium for challenge and personal growth to achieve our vision of "Experiential Learning inspiring positive change."

We know these benefits are holistic and wide ranging and we strive towards a space where access to these experiences are available to, and valued by all. But how do we measure and evaluate these impacts? And how do we know they are long lasting? In 2016 we began a journey to answer these questions.

Learn about how we measured our social impact for 2018.

Understanding our Impact

The outcomes our participants achieve at Whenua Iti Outdoors are often profound and life changing.  They can also be hard to quantify.

In order to ensure that we are meeting our social mandate and offering quality programmes to our many participants, we have developed an evaluation framework to determine and define our impact.

As a product of this evaluation, we published our first Social Impact Report in 2017, outlining how our partners, funders, students, school and community viewed our impact on individuals and the wider community. We continue to look for ways to collect data and make sure our programmes deliver the outcomes we intend and we measure other wider impacts too.
