Youth Peer Support Program Evaluation Measures
Child and Youth Resilience Measure (CYRM-R)
NM-YPS recommends agencies offering Youth Peer Support use the Child and Youth Resiliency Measure to evaluate YPS participant outcomes. Collaboratively developed by researchers from 11 countries, the CYRM-R is a mixed methods approach to measuring resilience in youth that takes into account the interplay between an individual youth’s characteristics and the attributes of their culture. The CYRM-R’s cross-cultural design makes it a logical choice to measure the resilience of the diverse youth receiving New Mexico Youth Peer Support Services.
