Impact Evaluation of USAID 'Yes Youth Can!' - Kenya Project.
Yes Youth Can! (YYC) is the largest USAID (United States Agency for International Development) program in the world, covering approximately 60% of Kenya. The YYC program was initially created in response to the 2007 post-election violence involving Kenya's youth, with the goal of empowering Kenya's oft-marginalized youth - economically, politically, and socially - through the creation, training, and support of self-led and managed youth groups. For this project, NORC was responsible for designing and conducting a rigorous impact evaluation. The impact evaluation is aimed at addressing both the Accountability and Learning objectives as laid out in the USAID Evaluation Policy, and will be used by USAID YYC staff in order to inform future programming in YYC in Kenya and beyond.
