New Profit College Summit National Evaluation Report

The College Summit Navigator program (Navigator) is a nationwide program that aims to improve the college-going culture and college enrollment rates in high schools serving low-income, minority, and first-generation college-going students. Navigator aims to:

  • Provide high school seniors with greater knowledge of the college search and admissions processes
  • Provide the support and tools necessary to navigate the college selection and enrollment processes

Study Goals:

The goals of the study were:

Evaluation Report: Urban Alliance High School Internship Program

Schools in high-poverty areas often lack sufficient resources and offer inadequate instruction. Moreover, because of family, neighborhood, and peer environment factors, low-income children attending these schools have difficulty taking advantage of the educational opportunities that do exist. In Washington, DC, where the program is headquartered (and where the cost of living is high), 27 percent of children under age 18 live below the federal poverty level. In Baltimore, MD, the share of children in poverty is even higher, at 34 percent.

AmeriCorps Opportunity Youth Evaluation Bundling Project

In 2014, the Office of Research and Evaluation (ORE) and AmeriCorps State and National (ASN) began an evaluation of grantee programs that engage opportunity youth (OY) as AmeriCorps members. The evaluation bundled 19 ASN programs into a single, collaboratively designed impact evaluation. The study assessed whether OY who participated in AmeriCorps showed greater improvements in education, employment, and civic engagement outcomes than comparison youth.
