Many community-based youth-serving organizations lack the technical capacity to collect data for evaluation and sustainability. This project provides technical assistance and training on EZreports, a Web-based attendance tracking system, that can provide organizations with data to present to stakeholders and funders and use for program improvement. Data is then linked to school achievement information to assess relations among site characteristics, activities provided, and school outcomes.
