Evaluation of McCreary Programs


Funded by the National Crime Prevention Centre (NCPC), McCreary’s Aboriginal Next Steps II project (ANS-II) offered Aboriginal youth ages 13 to 19 the opportunity to participate in a sustainable crime prevention and health promotion initiative. The expectation was that community involvement and participation in meaningful youth-led projects would reduce Aboriginal youths’ risk factors for engaging in high-risk behaviours and would support protective factors associated with healthy development.

To evaluate this project, quantitative and qualitative data were collected from youth participants, their caregivers, and adult support staff. To download a copy of the evaluation report, please click here.
