Applied Research and Evaluation

Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.

Do you know that you’re making positive changes at individual, family, organizational or community levels and remain uncertain about how to measure those outcomes?  Are you planning to conduct a survey and want a professional product that will result in a high response rate and useful information?  Are you sitting on data that you’re not quite sure what to do with?

The Strategies Center at Youth for Change™ is ready to collaborate with you, starting from where you are.  We add value to applied research and evaluation projects, regardless of our clients’ current knowledge.  We engage leadership, line staff, program participants, and other stakeholders to develop research designs, measurement strategies, and analytic approaches tailored to meet your specific information needs. Every research and evaluation professional development and capacity building element we provide is attuned to the social, cultural-linguistic, and policy environment in which you work.

When the results are in, we will work in partnership with you to design and implement reporting and dissemination strategies optimized to achieve your communication goals with diverse audiences.   From scholarly publications to neighborhood presentations and funder dashboards, the results you report will be welcomed as clear, informative, and useful.
