Community Science is working in partnership with the Urban Institute to evaluate and support leadership institutes for youth and adult community members in Duck Hill, MS. The leadership institutes are intended to support residents by building individual and community resilience and combating exclusion by local government and other decision-making bodies. Community Science has collaborated with community members to ground the youth and community institutes in current research and led the development of an assessment framework for the initiative. We are collecting data through observation, focus groups, and interviews with program participants and staff to provide insights on the program’s effectiveness and to document its implementation. 00587
