Editorial Reviews


"… serves as a good resource for practitioners looking to engage youth in both evaluation and research." (Journal of Multidisciplinary Evaluation, March 2008)

From the Back Cover

Youth Participatory Evaluation

Youth Participatory Evaluation: Strategies for Engaging Young People is a groundbreaking book that provides step-by-step, playful, and accessible activities that have proven effective and can be used by evaluators, educators, youth workers, researchers, funders, and children's and human rights advocates in their efforts to more effectively engage young people.

Youth Participatory Evaluation brings a much-needed theoretical framework to the important new field of YPE. Drawing on theories of children's play, evaluation, and youth development, the book outlines evidence that including youth as members of participatory evaluation teams benefits young people, their programs and communities, and the field of evaluation itself.

Praise for Youth Participatory Evaluation

"This is a step-by-step guide to using Kim Sabo Flores' practical and playful tools for engaging youth, but also a passionate message about young people's capacity and desire to develop through performing."

Lois Holzman, director, East Side Institute for Group and Short Term Psychotherapy

"Dr. Sabo Flores does an excellent job of laying out the process of participatory evaluation and how to make it an inclusive, relevant, and valuable experience for both adults and young people."

Anne H. Lawrence, program officer, the Robert Browne Foundation

"Youth Participatory Evaluation demonstrates what youth can do with the tool of self-assessment. The ripple effect of this work in the pond of evaluation thought is deep and far reaching. It begs the question: if youth can do it to improve their lives, why can't adults use empowerment and participatory approaches to take control of their lives as well?"

David Fetterman, director of evaluation, School of Medicine, Stanford University and past president, American Evaluation Association

"As youth participatory evaluation emerges from youth development, community participation, and program evaluation, this book will advance its understanding as an interdisciplinary field of practice and subject of study."

Barry Checkoway, professor of social work, University of Michigan, and author, Participatory Evaluation with Young People
