The main purpose of this evaluation is to determine whether the youth training programs at Zuni Pueblo and Mora are meeting community and youth needs. In eliciting the written and oral feedback of many participants, community members, and staff, the evaluation intends to distill key themes from their collective experience in the summer of 1996. From the information collected, several program strengths and weaknesses shall emerge, which will be used by program and administrative staff to modify the program as it evolves. The evaluation also has the potential to be used as a promotional tool, not only for recruiting potential participants and community supporters, but also funders and new communities considering a partnership with Cornerstones. In addition, the evaluation provides accountability to current funding sources, and informs them of progress related to the funded initiatives.
