RGK Center Releases Statewide Evaluation for AmeriCorps*Texas
27 AUG 2012

From 2009-2012, OneStar contracted with Dr. Peter Frumkin of the University of Texas’ RGK Center for Philanthropy and Community Service (http://www.rgkcenter.org/) to develop and implement a rigorous, scientifically-based independent evaluation of the AmeriCorps*Texas portfolio. The evaluation consisted of four elements: measuring the value of AmeriCorps service across Texas; analyzing impact as reported by Corps members incorporating and adding to some of the field-tested elements from the longitudinal study Still Serving: Measuring the Eight-Year Impact of AmeriCorps on Alumni designed by Abt Associates; analyzing organizational structure and program management characteristics to identify any organizational determinants of successful implementation; and providing a series of case studies that represent the diversity of the portfolio to illustrate the breadth of service and the strategic use of AmeriCorps members to make significant impact in their communities.
