CSWs by the Numbers: A Statistical Portrait of Community Science Workshops
Inverness Research Associates
This module provides a set of quantitative snapshots of the Community Science Workshops (CSWs) to complement the other reports that comprise the CSW Evaluation Portfolio--the Description of CSWs, the Benefits to Youth, and the Evaluation Brief modules--and to build a solid representation of the scope and scale of the CSW's work and accomplishments. The snapshots are organized around the following question areas: (1) How many CSW workshops are there, where are they, and how long have they been there?; (2) What are the characteristics of the youth and communities that CSWs serve?; (3) How many programs do CSWs offer? What kinds of programs do the CSWs offer? How many of each kind of program do they offer? How many hours of programming are devoted to the various types of programs offered by the CSWs?; (4) How many students do CSWs serve in their core programs? How many youth and community members do the CSWs serve in other programs? How much exposure does the average participant have to key CSW programs?; (5) How have the CSWs expanded and grown since 1994?; (6) What does a typical workshop accomplish in a year?; (7) What support do CSWs attract from their local communities?; and (8) What level of staffing and funding is needed to run a CSW site? (Contains 9 footnotes.)
