The tool kits, Reflect and Improve: A Tool Kit for Engaging Youth and Adults as Partners in Program Evaluation and Learning and Leading: A Tool Kit for Youth Development and Civic Activism, build on the Innovation Center's experience working with local groups to involve youth, build community, and strengthen organizations. For ordering information, contact the center at
