Year Four Evaluation of City Year Greater Philadelphia

Research for Action’s (RFA’s) evaluation of City Year Greater Philadelphia (CYGP) c during the 2011-12 school year represents the fourth consecutive year of RFA’s partnership with CYGP. The study found that Corps members were not always providing behavioral and academic supports to the target population, and that relatively few students who received academic tutoring reached CYGP dosage thresholds. The analyses of the effect corps member supports exerted on student attendance, behavior and academic performance did not generate clear results.
