“I'm thrilled by this study of OneGoal for two reasons. First, this sort of rigorous evaluation is practically unprecedented—and it provides a stellar model for the evaluation of other programs aimed at improving youth outcomes. Second, the results are tremendously encouraging and suggest the power of innovative programs and committed individuals in the community to change lives.”
