About this grant

This grant will provide support to the Corporation for a Skilled Workforce to conduct an evaluation of the Summer Youth Initiative. The initiative provides job training and employment opportunities to Flint area youth ages 14 to 18. The evaluation will be retrospective and include both impact evaluation and program evaluation, looking at qualitative and quantitative data for the past five years in order to gauge how participants have moved through the initiative and leveraged their participation to navigate transition points in their educational and career pathways. The project will also help define future research and assessment needs.
