Abstract: This study is focused on understanding the history of girls' education in North America, the purpose of after-school programmes and explore evaluation strategies for potential programme and quality improvements. It is specifically based on a case study with Indigo Girls Group, an after-school programme catered for girls ages 9 to 11 located in Guelph, Ontario in Canada. Regarding the research methodology, this study analyzes the programme manual, existing evaluations, feedback from attendants from the summer conference, and year-end evaluations by club participants and branch leaders. Furthermore, the results will be focused on a comparative analysis of evaluation methods from a range of literature from scholarly articles and journals, case study reports and excerpts by international organizations. Findings will recommend how this particular after-school programme can improve their evaluation strategies and performance, the importance of reassessing target audience and resource allocation, the implementation of a programme logic model (PLM) and Programme Quality Indicator, as well as a variety of creative evaluative tools for future use.
