On Track to Success: Five Year Summary of Evaluation Results from Congreso’s Éxito Program

Congreso de Latinos Unidos has partnered with Edison High School on the Éxito™ initiative since 2008-09 with the goal of reducing the school’s high dropout rate and increasing graduation rates. The program has received support from a variety of funders in its five-year history, including Philadelphia’s Department of Human Services (DHS), The Pew Charitable Trusts, Edna McConnell Clark Foundation, Philadelphia Youth Network, United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, 21st Century Community Learning Centers, and the Comcast Corporation.

Research for Action (RFA) has evaluated Éxito™ since its inception and has documented student outcomes for the first two cohorts of students who entered the program in 2008 and 2009, respectively. This is a five-year summary of RFA’s evaluation results.
