Freechild Institute Research

(April 2020) Since 2001, the Freechild Institute has been facilitating learning events, conducting projects, building networks and supporting youth + social change around the world.

Recently, Freechild partnered with Jill Feldman, PhD of Westat and Kirk Knestis, PhD of Inciter to develop a number of tools to help us evaluate and research our offerings.

In our first survey, we use 10 questions measure perceptions of organizations relating to youth/adult partnerships. These questions were based off work by a team led by Shepard Zeldin, S. who wrote a September 2014 article called “Conceptualizing and Measuring Youth-Adult Partnership in Community Programs: A Cross National Study Article” for the American Journal of Community Psychology 54(3-4).

This survey will run through August 2020, and we want it to go wide and far. When its complete, we will release a public paper to announce our findings!

The Freechild Institute will be introducing other tools from this partnership soon. If you have any questions, contact Adam Fletcher at (360) 489-9680 or email him today.
