Impact Evaluation: Program Jóvenes con Porvenir

The impact evaluation aims to estimate the effect of the program in different aspects of the beneficiaries' professional and personal lives. More specificially, we evaluate the impact of the program on participants' employment and educational outcomes, access to professional networks, and weakening of social bonds to gang groups. In addition, we evaluate whether the program changed students' expectations of the future.

We estimate heterogeneous effects of the program across gender, age, and levels of marginalization. The evaluation also includes an analysis of graduation and reenrollment rates, as well as an assessment of beneficiaries' experience in the program. Finally, the study provides feedback on the design and implmentation of the program for scaling-up purposes.
