This kit provides tools for program assessment and improvement to assist in working towards providing better service to youth. It provides a kind of recipe or standard for assessing and developing high quality programming. It attempts to capture what are the common elements of successful youth programs. The idea is that programs incorporating all or many of the best practices should achieve positive outcomes.To some extent, the Kit was developed as an alternative or complement to outcome evaluation.
