Has Evidence2Success influenced youth health, development, and well-being?

Engaging communities to provide for the needs of children and youth

Childhood experiences often affect our future health and well-being. Poverty, lack of health insurance, and limited community resources threaten childhood development, especially for children of color, who face systemic barriers and generational inequities.

Westat is assessing the extent to which Evidence2Success has influenced youth social and emotional health, development, and well-being.

Westat is conducting a 3-phase evaluation grounded in the principles of culturally responsive and equitable evaluation.

  • Phase 1: Reviewing the existing data and administering telephone interviews with program administrators.
  • Phase 2: Conducting evaluability assessment site visits to determine if the program can be evaluated in a reliable and valid fashion.
  • Phase 3: Planning and implementing a cross-site outcome evaluation. The mixed methods evaluation will consist of interviews with key stakeholders (site coordinators, local data partners, program facilitators, and community members) and surveys for youth and parents.

Our evaluation will help determine if Evidence2Success helped children and youth in 3 communities (Mobile, Alabama; Selma, Alabama; and Kearns, Utah) meet critical milestones in behavioral, educational, emotional, and physical development.
