Abstract or Summary
  • The Producing for the Future project engaged thirty low-income youth in gardening and nutrition education, microenterprise activities, and participatory research during the 2011 and 2012 growing seasons. The intervention aimed to support community protective factors, build positive youth development, and enhance health outcomes through promoting skill-building and mentorship. The mixedmethods approach to program evaluation included interviews, focus groups, and quantitative measures. A peer interview process was conducted with a subsample of youth during the summer of 2012, and engaged youth in creating, conducting, and debriefing interviews with one another. This study compared data gathered in the peer-led interviews to data from staff-led interviews, with the aim of understanding the differences in the two methodologies and in the data they produced. The theoretical frameworks of symbolic interactionism and community-based participatory research informed the methods and analysis. Findings indicate that evidence of participants' level of rapport with interviewers and number of tangents during the interviews led to increased richness of data from some participants in the peer interview group. Furthermore, the group debriefing discussion contributed to the researchers' final analysis of the data, and is an example of youth synthesis of thematic findings. Implications include the value of participatory methods with youth and the recommendation of the peer-led interview process as a way to incorporate youth voice into evaluation research.
