Youth-led Participatory Action Research (YPAR)
The Center for Wellness and Nutrition believes that youth voice and buy-in is imperative to building sustainable healthy communities. We train and provide technical assistance to organizations to conduct YPAR projects where young people engage with health equity issues that affect their communities to build tangible community change. These projects not only provide youth with the opportunity to engage their leadership, critical thinking, problem-solving, service learning, and strategic-thinking skills, but also leave lasting effects on the community.
Combining Quantitative and Qualitative Methods to Tell Your Story
When evaluating programs, it’s important to use methods that quantify changes in indicators and outcomes to measure your progress, but understanding why and how those changes are occurring is equally important. Designing evaluations to use both quantitative and qualitative methods makes it possible to understand important, and often unexpected, factors at play in the implementation of programs and interventions.
Join us to discover how the Center for Wellness and Nutrition uses quantitative and qualitative methods to programs, and learn how you can use similar methods to tell your story.
