Data is important to track and engage with community collaboration throughout the initiative, including the number and type of stakeholders/agencies involved in guiding the work. Surveys and reflections about the collective impact infrastructure, specific initiative activities, is helpful to help this work recalibrate and identify gaps in this work.
The outcome evaluation will focus on the effects of initiative outputs on participants and the broader Tucson community. This includes measuring changes in knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors attributable to masculinity programming by utilizing trainee pre- and post- tests. Longitudinal surveys with Likert scale and open-ended questions on self efficacy, emotional resilience and mental health, pro-social involvement, and masculine ideology will be administered to mentees and mentors at the start and end of each year of the mentoring relationship.
Descriptive statistical analyses will be conducted on these pre- and post- test datasets to determine any significant changes in knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors among youth and adult participants and community members that can be attributed to masculinity programming that is offered by the initiative. The outcome evaluation will also employ thematic textual analysis to measure any practical changes in administrative policies and practices that occur as a direct result of initiative activities.
