Our Impact

To ensure that our work is making a difference in the lives of the youth we serve, we rigorously track our performance and outcomes.

COMPASS measures youth on four domains:

  • Positive environment and relationships
  • Positive choices and learning
  • Positive identity and purpose
  • Positive consciousness and action

For each domain, we created ladders, measurements and activities. We continuously measure our youth on these ladders to ensure they are moving towards the desired outcomes.

We know we are making progress towards our mission when the youth we serve reach the desired long-term outcomes:

  1.  Engaged in or completed school
  2.  Employed
  3.  Healthy relationships outside COMPASS
  4.  Living Violence Free (no new criminal justice involvement and no use of physical violence)
