Performance Improvement 2013-2014. What Was the Research Design and Methodology Used In the Communities Empowering Youth Evaluation?


The Communities Empowering Youth's addressed the capacity building needs of partnerships of nonprofit organizations tackling issues of gang violence, youth violence, or child abuse and neglect. The projects consisted of a partnership between a lead organization/institution and at least two other partnering non-profit organizations that provided services to youth within a specific geographical area.

Researchers developed an evaluation methodology including sampling design, weights, and analytic approach. The survey measured changes in two types of capacity: organizational capacity of each lead organization and their partner organizations and partnership capacity.
