The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation engaged Community Science to evaluate Kansas City’s effort to ensure the success of its future generations by increasing their access to caring adults, safe places, a healthy start, marketable skills and opportunities to give back through community service. For the evaluation, we built systems for volunteer recruitment, placement, and tracking among volunteer centers in five counties; tracked adults’ commitments; monitored youth development outcomes; interviewed civic leaders and youth; and evaluated local strategies.

Let’s do some good work together.
