The Community Renewal Team (CRT) is an anti‐poverty, non‐profit organization based in Hartford. For over 10 years they have run a Summer Youth Employment & Learning Program (SYELP).

While CRT has been running this program for several years, it has recently made some structural modifications in order to improve the impact of the program. Thus, to determine the current impact of the program, to identify best practices and to suggest improvements, we conducted an evaluation of SYELP. Through student survey data collected by CRT and interviews that we conducted with supervisors, we gauged the strengths and weaknesses of the program in order to provide insight on the impact of the program and where improvements can be made to most effectively benefit the youth.
