The Foundation supports high-quality empirical studies designed to improve youth settings and increase our understanding of how those settings work. We are also focused on understanding how and under what conditions research evidence is used to influence policy and practice that affect youth.
Through funding from the William T. Grant Foundation, MDRC researchers Michael Weiss, Howard Bloom, and Thomas Brock have produced A Conceptual Framework for Studying the Sources of Variation in Program Effects.
