Youth as Evaluators

Engaging Youth in Program Evaluation

Youth should be involved throughout the entire process through a collaborative relationship with adults. They can be engaged by helping think of research questions, issues, focus groups, and observation. It is key to make sure youth aren’t just saying what they do and don’t like, but actually making decisions. Adults can help in this process by building their skills to engage youth through exposure to youth culture.
