Center for Applied Research and Educational Improvement
Youth Frontiers is a nonprofit organization that partners with schools to build positive communities where students thrive socially, emotionally and academically. In September 2008, Youth Frontiers, Incorporated (YF) contracted with the Center for Applied Research
and Educational Improvement (CAREI) to conduct an evaluation of YF programming over three years.
The purpose of our evaluation is threefold: to determine the extent that participation in YF
programming increases students’ social and emotional learning competencies; to determine if
participation helps students feel more connected to peers and adults in their school communities; and
to determine whether YF retreats have a positive effect on youth participants and the school as a whole.
