How can pro­grams for young peo­ple engage those young peo­ple in mak­ing the pro­grams bet­ter? The Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion held a webi­nar on Sept. 9 to explore this ques­tion, focus­ing on how Lati­nos in Action (LIA), a pro­gram that builds col­lege and career skills for young peo­ple across 13 states, col­lects data from youth to mea­sure how faith­ful­ly it is imple­ment­ing its pro­gram mod­el — and how it uses those data for staff to con­tin­u­ous­ly reflect on and improve their work.

The webi­nar, Mea­sur­ing Pro­gram Effec­tive­ness With Youth Voice, fea­tured LIA founder and Chief Exec­u­tive Offi­cer Jose Enriquez, who was joined by Sal­ly Mune­mit­su, cofounder and chief oper­at­ing offi­cer of Hel­lo Insight, a data plat­form LIA uses with the sup­port of the Casey Foun­da­tion. They dis­cussed using prin­ci­ples of pos­i­tive youth devel­op­ment in col­lect­ing and act­ing on feed­back from young people.

Pan­elists included:

  • Suzanne Barnard, direc­tor, Evi­dence-Based Prac­tice Group, The Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion, moderator
  • Jose Enriquez, founder and chief exec­u­tive offi­cer, Lati­nos in Action
  • Sal­ly Mune­mit­su, cofounder and chief oper­at­ing offi­cer, Hel­lo Insight
