Evaluating the Youth Engagement and Action for Health! Program (eYEAH!)


We developed youth and adult group leader surveys to assess knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors around youth empowerment and advocacy, as well as health behaviors (e.g., physical activity and healthy eating).  The youth surveys can be administered before and after training for youth groups in advocacy for nutrition and physical activity environment and policy changes.

The adult pre- and post-tests are available by contacting Rachel Millstein (ramillstein@mgh.harvard.edu), as they are only currently online in Survey Monkey.

Scoring information will be available shortly.
