Program Evaluation Shows Mentoring Is Making A Difference!

The numbers from the Partnership 4 Kids 2011-2012 program evaluation are in and the results are favorable!

P4K Training and Assessment Coordinator, Jessica Warren explains the current evaluation outcomes show significantly higher skills test scores of  P4K student participants in comparison to their fellow peers who are not involved in the program.

Results also demonstrate a possible connection between mentoring and increased student success.   Evaluation findings show substantially higher grade point averages of students participating in mentoring than of their classmates.

“We take great pride in our students’ accomplishments over the past year,” says P4K President, Deb Denbeck.  “We also realize that there is more work to be done, but with the help of our amazing volunteers and supporters, there is no telling what great heights our students will be able to reach.”

     2011-2012 Partnership program evaluation results were analyzed and interpreted by third party evaluator, Dr. Deepak Khazanchi,
      Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at the Peter Kiewit Institute,  University of Nebraska at Omaha, in cooperation with the
      Omaha Public Schools Research Department.
