How can promis­ing pro­grams devel­op evi­dence that they are effec­tive for chil­dren and young peo­ple of col­or and fur­ther racial equi­ty? Why aren’t more pro­grams designed for young peo­ple of col­or, espe­cial­ly those involved with pub­lic sys­tems? The Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion will hold a webi­nar to exam­ine these ques­tions on Novem­ber 19, 2020, fea­tur­ing lead­ers of two pro­grams focused on tar­get­ed strate­gies for young peo­ple of col­or and on devel­op­ing evi­dence that con­sid­ers their cul­tur­al backgrounds.

The hour­long webi­nar, Devel­op­ing Evi­dence for Young Peo­ple of Col­or, will fea­ture pre­sen­ta­tions and a pan­el dis­cus­sion with Qaadi­rah Abdur-Rahim, chief exec­u­tive offi­cer of Future Foun­da­tion, and Johan­na Moya Fábre­gas, exec­u­tive direc­tor of Con Mi MADRE. Future Foun­da­tion con­nects Atlanta mid­dle and high school stu­dents with after-school and sum­mer pro­gram­ming and sup­port, and Con Mi MADRE, based in Austin, Texas, focus­es on help­ing young Lati­nas pre­pare for col­lege. Both pro­grams have received Foun­da­tion sup­port to devel­op evi­dence of effectiveness.

Among oth­er top­ics, the webi­nar will examine:

  • how pro­grams define evidence;
  • how cul­ture affects evi­dence, and how evi­dence affects cul­ture; and
  • how pro­grams use evi­dence to build toward expansion.
