Quality assessment, best practices, outcomes and program evaluation tools are subjects which all of us must face in our constant efforts to improve our services and attract funding. YIPA has a unique vantage point as a statewide association to observe the ebb and flow of various standards and methods. The purpose of this information is two-fold. First, we hope to share with youth intervention program providers an evolving list of the resources and tools available to measure and identify best practices in the field. Second, we hope to inspire those who are in positions to implement assessment tools or create new, more youth intervention-specific methods to take action. The reports listed below provide a literature and web review.   For these purposes, YIPA does not support one method over another, nor have we created any new measures. Programs are different and, especially in a field as varied as youth intervention, different programs have different needs.  We hope you will find them useful.
