Data allows us to shine a light on needs and gaps so that we can move quickly to address what is not working and channel resources accordingly. With good data we can:

  • Equip providers with tools and insights to inform programming decisions and target services to where they’re needed most
  • Influence policy and practice so that we can increase access to quality programs for youth of color
  • Capture and maintain youth and staff demographics data so that we have a lens on who’s being served and by whom
  • Translate analysis into community-connected stories that center youth-serving professionals and youth voice
  • Track private philanthropy and public dollars, over time, so that we can analyze the impact of such investments
  • Ensure that anyone —families, advocates, young people, educators, etc.—can access basic information about youth programs in their community
