Abstract

Caterina Gozzoli, Chiara D’Angelo and Emanuela Confalonieri

This work presents the findings of a participatory research
program evaluating the outcomes of an Italian sports program for minors at
risk. Using a participatory evaluation approach enabled an evaluation-research
close to the real objectives and useful for monitoring and re-planning actions,
starting from an initial exploration of the different stakeholders’ views of the
project itself. The research design is presented in the form of a case study,
emphasizing the continuous involvement of the project’s stakeholders in the
evaluation process. The outcomes here presented make evident how the
participatory evaluation project allowed a targeted and ongoing monitoring at
group level as well as at individual level with the minors involved in the project.
