Measuring Youth Program Quality: A Guide to Assessment Tools

Posted by on February 2, 2009

Letter from William T. Grant Foundation President, Dr. Robert C. Granger re: The Forum for Youth Investments’ report “Measuring Youth Program Quality: A Guide to Assessment Tools.”

Dear Colleagues,
I would like to call your attention to an important update from one of our grantees. The Forum for Youth Investment recently released the second edition of their report, *Measuring Youth Program Quality: A Guide to Assessment Tools.* This compendium of program observation tools provides information on each tool*s purpose, history, structure, and methodology. It is an invaluable resource for practitioners, researchers, and policymakers trying to choose or develop such a measure and an important addition to the Foundation*s work on improving youth programs.

This second edition includes a new measurement instrument and updated information about many of the tools in the first edition, which was originally published in March 2007. You can download the report on the Forum’s website at
