A little free advice can go a long way.

Our fall Data Clinic application is open and a few sessions are still available! Please note, currently all data clinics are being held virtually via Zoom.

Data Clinics are one of the ways that the DIP works to fulfill our mission of providing free and low-cost support to Maine-based mission-driven organizations. Data Clinics are our free version of this support and include two hours of focused and individualized technical assistance on a data or evaluation related issue.

We offer two data clinics per month from September through June. Interested organizations should fill out our short application to help us understand what you are hoping to gain from the session. If we think that we can help answer your question(s), we will welcome you to join us for a clinic hosted by two of our team members. Applications are released in the summer for fall sessions and in late fall for winter/spring sessions. Applicants are accepted on a first come first serve basis.


We can help you: 

Refine or start a logic model
Review a survey, focus group or interview protocol
Discuss how to collect the data you need
Brainstorm effective ways to present your data to key audiences 
Tell your story using your data

We are incredible grateful for this resource. We hare referenced the logic models, and strategies for different surveying techniques multiple times since the clinic.
