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.
