Eval12 Session 634: Our Seven-Year Journey to Create and Maintain a Culture of Learning and Evaluation in a Multi-service Non-profit Organization

The Latin American Youth Center (LAYC), a multi-service nonprofit in Washington, D.C., is an example of a nonprofit that has been working to achieve this culture change. One of the organization's internal evaluators shared: 1) How our roles have changed to respond to the organization’s evolving needs, 2) Our strategies for producing relevant information for all stakeholders, from funders to the Board of Directors to the program recipients themselves, and 3) Our methods of building evaluation capacity so that we’re partnering with program staff through the evaluation lifecycle rather than making decisions on their behalf

A Collaborative Mixed-Method Evaluation of a Multi-Site Student Behavior, School Culture, and Climate Program

The study was conducted across nine cities and 31 urban, public schools, using data from an additional 157 schools to examine outcomes and quality of implementation. Researchers analyzed data from multiple sources, including school records on suspensions, detentions, and office referrals; student self-reported prosocial behaviors; ratings of student social-emotional skills; stakeholder surveys (teachers, principals/liaisons, students, program staff); and rich case observations.
