Over the past two years, IREX has witnessed transformation in youth and educators firsthand: Robiya, who convinced her parents to let her continue school; Gulnara, who bravely addressed discrimination-based bullying; and Suhrob, who brings divided border communities together.

Now, with the support of USAID, IREX is pleased to release the full results of the final evaluation of the Youth Theater for Peace Program in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. The quantitative and qualitative results from the final evaluation support these and other inspiring stories, providing evidence that the program helps youth increase their capacity to mitigate conflict. An external consultant led the evaluation, using a mixed quantitative and qualitative methodology to collect data from participants, a comparison group, and community members over a period of one month.

The evaluator found that YTP significantly increased participants’ empathy towards and positive interactions with people of different ethnicities, religions and nationalities. Participants also developed confidence in their ability to help resolve conflict in their communities and lead adults and other youth in constructive dialogue around local issues.

The executive summary and full report are available here: http://www.irex.org/news/youth-transformed-final-evaluation-youth-t....
