Publications, Reports and Presentations

This is the first of two evaluation reports. It offers a preliminary evaluation of the Portland Metropolitan Area Boys & Girls Clubs Targeted Outreach program. It assesses whether program participation and outcome goals have been met in the first year of a 2- year review period. The review period covers the 2004-2005 and 2005-2006 school years. This report is intended to document the success of the program during the first year, and to suggest ways to improve the process of measuring and documenting the success of the program during the following year. The second and final report will be a fuller evaluation of the program and will be completed in 2006. The evaluation is based on measuring two main items: 1) participation, which is the recruitment and retention of targeted youth in program activities; and 2) outcomes – the change in the targeted youth’s school performance and developmental assets due to participation in program activities.
