Logic Models and Outcomes for Youth in the Transition to Adulthood. Report to the DC Children and Youth Investment Trust Corporation
Brown, Brett; Carrano, Jennifer; Shwalb, Rebecca
Child Trends
The primary purpose of this report is to provide logic models and measurable outcomes for youth in transition to adulthood programs funded by the DC Children and Youth Investment Trust Corporation (DCCYIT). In addition, the report describes the factors associated with the emergence of the life cycle stage considered the transition to adulthood, the developmental domains associated with this stage, and the contexts shaping the transition to adulthood. The authors also describe the "outcomes" that are most likely to be affected by experimental intervention programs that serve young adults. This theoretical review provides a basis for the creation of logic models and the identification of outcomes for programs serving youth in the transition to adulthood that can be tracked and monitored over time by the DC Trust. The proposed outcomes cover a range of domains. This report can be used as a tool by individual programs to determine which outcomes and measures are most pertinent. Logic models are created using the framework and terminology developed by the United Way Foundation of America. Appended are: (1) Summary Table of Programs Serving Youth in the Transition to Adulthood Funded by the DC Children and Youth Investment Trust Corporation 2004-2005; (2) A Simple Model of Early Adulthood and Related Contextual Influences; (3) Experimentally Evaluated Programs Serving Youth in the Transition to Adulthood; (4) Theory/Prior Research Logic Model of Outcomes for Youth in Transition to Adulthood Programs; and (5) Program-Based Logic Model of Outcomes for Young Adults in Transition to Adulthood Programs Funded by the DC Children and Youth Investment Trust Corporation. (Contains 2 tables, 4 figures and 115 footnotes.)
