Oakland Fund for Children and Youth (OFCY) evaluates all funded programs at the grantee and strategy level through third party independent evaluators.

Social Policy Research Associates will provide FY2017-2018 evaluations for the following strategies:

  • Early Childhood Mental Health Consultations
  • Parent Support and Education
  • Student Engagement in Learning
  • Year-Round Youth Development and Empowerment 
  • Summer Youth Development and Empowerment 
  • Career Awareness and Academic Support for Older Youth

Programs evaluated by SPR in 2017-2018 arranged by Agency Name can be found here, and by Funding Strategy here.

Public Profit will also continue to evaluate all programs in the strategy School Based After School. This evaluation of school-based afterschool programs is jointly funded with the Oakland Unified School District as part of the City of Oakland's partnership with the school district in support of high quality elementary and middle school afterschool programs for Oakland students.


We want to give a voice to all OFCY participants, including summer cohorts and programs. For this reason, the OFCY evaluators are requesting that participants fill out the survey when they complete their program at any point. Please use the links below to access the appropriate survey guidelines and survey instruments for your program. If you are not sure which survey your program should use, please refer to the OFCY Summer 2017 Programs - Survey Assignments document.  Surveys should be returned in-person or mailed to:

The final deadline for survey submission for summer-based programs is Thursday, August 31, 2017.  The survey guidelines provide further instructions on how to administer the survey.
