Description

This report covers 12 inner-city Neighborhood Youth Centers operating in Connecticut and funded with federal Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act, Governor's portion funds through the state Office of Policy and Management. The outcome part of the evaluation looked at the impact of youth participation in their centers as related to the degree of social support the youth perceived to be available to them by center staff as well as the youth's abilities to make responsible choices and their self-reported levels of anxiety and well-being. The process part of the evaluation collected attendance data from all centers and survey data from youth on their perceptions of "supports and opportunities" present in the centers. Summaries of these perceptions were shared with center directors who then worked on a program improvement plan. One year after the initial data were collected, youth were re-surveyed to determine whether the improvement objectives had been achieved.
