A new video shows how Evidence2Success, a frame­work that brings pub­lic sys­tem and com­mu­ni­ty lead­ers togeth­er to choose evi­dence-based pro­grams to improve child well-being, has been work­ing in Prov­i­dence, Rhode Island, the first Evidence2Success community.

The effort in Prov­i­dence has been led by the Prov­i­dence Chil­dren and Youth Cab­i­net, with tech­ni­cal assis­tance from the Foun­da­tion. Key sys­tem lead­ers and res­i­dents of two focus neigh­bor­hoods reviewed data from the Youth Expe­ri­ence Sur­vey, admin­is­tered to Prov­i­dence stu­dents, to come up with three local pri­or­i­ties for improve­ment: chron­ic school absen­teeism, emo­tion­al well-being and delin­quen­cy. The local group then used the Blue­prints data­base of evi­dence-based pro­grams to select pro­grams proven to meet those needs, and has final­ized an action plan to con­tin­ue to finance and imple­ment pro­grams over the next few years.
