The TGYS Evaluation Team analyzes pretest and post-test data collected by Grantees on a yearly basis to assess changes among over 5000 participating youth and parents on outcomes such as resilience, self-efficacy, school performance and bonding, bullying and delinquency, and positive parenting skills. In previous years, TGYS data has demonstrated positive change on outcomes that are closely linked to the TGYS goals of reduced crime and violence. Specifically, Drug Use, Bullying, and Delinquent Behaviors and Attitudes decreased among participants. This kind of positive change generated by TGYS programming is a substantial step toward achieving its major goals. Positive change has also been established on outcomes that are closely linked to the TGYS goals of reduced child abuse and neglect.
