Background Statement

Established in 1911, the Anaheim YMCA is woven into the fabric of the Anaheim community. The Anaheim Y got its start bringing Hi-Y clubs to local schools, and continues this tradition today by working collaboratively with 46 local schools to engage youth and teens in academically-enriching experiences that ensure bright futures.

Today, the Anaheim Family YMCA impacts over 20,000 youth, teens, adults, annually through its character-building programs.

Program success determined through student and parent surveys, focus groups, enrollment data and outcomes measurement through an external evaluator.  Evaluation plans include: 1) documenting program effectiveness in achieving goals regarding youth academic/social development; 2) disaggregate data (school, grade, duration of program participation) to determine dosage and programmatic practices that produce the most significant outcomes; 3) provide an examination of program wide components to ensure equity between all sites; 4) conduct surveys and student facilitated focus groups to ascertain student, parent and teacher satisfaction levels as well as student interests in various program activities/ supports; 5) provide ongoing feedback to implement appropriate strategies to guide program direction and decisions.
The comprehensive Anaheim Achieves afterschool program evaluation plan has been guided by the principles of CIM (Continuous Improvement Management) developed by the U.S. Dept. of Education.
