Youth-based projects that have strong emphases on career and educational paths
EDC will evaluate Adobe Systems Incorporated’s new signature initiative, Adobe Youth Voices (AYV), an international youth media making effort. Adobe and their program partners are training educators in five cities to lead youth media projects. The evaluation team will coordinate on-going evaluation to document the successes and challenges in implementing the initiative; and measure AYF effectiveness in meeting intended outcomes for teachers and students.
Through this project, More than a Dream Teen Pregnancy Prevention for Latino Youth, EDC aims to identify youth and parent interventions that address sexual health and pregnancy prevention among Latino youth. Interventions must be developmentally appropriate as well as culturally and linguistically relevant to Latino youth and their parents.
The goal is to reduce sexual and other risk behaviors. Participants will be Latino adolescents, ages 12-14, and their parents.
