More Than Words has been built through a dedication to data, accountability, and improving outcomes for the young people we serve. We have a clear theory of change and an Evaluation Advisory Council of nationally recognized experts. Not only do we engage young adults in collecting data every day about their performance, we continue to track outcomes of our Graduates for up to five years post-program.
We can tell you: work really does work. Graduates of More Than Words pursue education and secure and keep employment at rates that far exceed their peers: 94% of our youth and graduates have or are on track to earn a High School Diploma or equivalent, and 82% are working. We’re proud of these hard-earned accomplishments and each and every young person who works with us to take charge of their lives.
