How are you telling the story of your youth programming? Would it be helpful for you to have clear data to use for fundraising efforts or to create reports for your Synagogues board or Youth Advisory Committee?  Learn how one congregation is using tracked data such as participation, expenses, and programmatic success help push your programming to the next level.
