Formative Evaluation of the Prudential Foundation New Jersey Youth Initiative

Prudential Foundation of New Jersey (2003-2004)

EPI evaluated three educational outreach programs including the ASPIRA of NJ program, the Boys and Girls Club of Newark, and the Princeton-Blairstown project. These programs targeted urban, at-risk youth (i.e., with academic grades of a “C” or worse) in grades 8 and 9. The evaluation included the development, administration, and analysis of a student survey. The purpose of the evaluation was to design and collect information to benchmark student achievement and reported attitudes towards the three programs.
