The YPE students attended a summit at the Urban League on Monday, October 26th.

What is YPE? The Youth Participatory Evaluation (YPE) program involves young peoples' voices in evaluating the programs, organizations, agencies, and systems that have been designed to serve them. The youth in YPE are provided with support to perform as evaluators. They are not merely respondents of methods created by adults, nor are they consultants on adult-led evaluations. Instead, they are the creators of knowledge, shaping their own evaluation questions, developing their own unique methods, analyzing and interpreting the data gathered, and reporting their findings. Youth participatory evaluators for the 2015-2016 school year will focus their work on evaluating the behavior standards initiative and creating their own survey/project in their home school. Their data will then be shared throughout Minneapolis Public Schools.
