Description

This poster reports methods and results of a qualitative evaluation of a youth transition program. Transcriptions of focus groups and interviews with three stakeholder groups (program staff, youth participants, and parents/grandparents) were coded by two independent investigators to identify themes related to perceived program impacts. Results of analysis, possible program improvement goals and future research topics will be discussed.
