Evaluation of the CAYLUS Youth Worker Brokerage Program



The evaluation of the Central Australian Youth Link Up Service (CAYLUS) aims to assist CAYLUS by establishing a rolling monitoring and evaluation process for the activities it runs through the CAYLUS Youth Worker Brokerage. The project will examine the impact of programs and activities supported by this brokerage on local level community crime particularly crime involving young people and petrol sniffing.

The evaluation will be based on a series of pre-test and post-test measures. The National Drug and Alcohol Research Institute (NDARC) will work with CAYLUS staff to improve existing data collection tools and methods.

Data will be collected by frontline youth workers as a part of brokerage funded activities. Where possible, data will be collected prior to the implementation of youth programs and at program completion. Additional crime and substance use data will be obtained from external agencies.
