Evidence-Building Research Partnerships
To continuously and effectively evaluate our work, we partner with academic and research organizations to help build the evidence base where it is lacking. Current partners include Columbia University School of Social Work, Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago, John Jay College of Criminal Justice at The City University of New York, Metis Associates, NYC’s Center for Innovation through Data Intelligence (CIDI) and New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development.
Highlights of our current projects:
- Implementation and outcome evaluation of our Transfer School model by Metis Associates. Click here to read the brief report about the evaluations’ findings. The full report is also available through this link.
- Outcome evaluation of the Chelsea Foyer at the Christopher by NYC’s Center for Innovation through Data Intelligence (CIDI).
- ACROSS (Advancing Collaborative Research in Out-of-School Settings) is a research-practice partnership with NYU’s Steinhardt School and Institute of Human Development and Social Change. Research from this partnership has been shared via a series of briefs, peer-reviewed articles, and blogs.
