Why We Measure

 

By using data as the foundation of our work, we seek to show that for our young people to succeed, the systems they experience must change. The data show that our systems are not equitable for Bexar County’s young people, especially our Black and Latinx communities. We believe in using data to inform our partners and community, to compel action to change these systems and to help our young people be ready for the future.

Who Utilizes This Data:

  • Researchers
  • Practioners
  • Community Members
  • Youth and Families

Where We Seek Change

 

We believe in the importance of disaggregating data by race, ethnicity, income, gender, and citizenship status whenever possible. This can then help those in power make informed decisions on how existing disparities within systems lead to disparities in outcomes.

Excel Beyond the Bell San Antonio began in 2012 as a professional network to develop and ensure standards for five-star youth development programs and to ensure young people in Bexar County have access to the developmental relationships they need to succeed.

Data provided to the network from local school districts helps all partners better understand young people in their organizations and it empowers youth development leaders to not just anecdotally know why developmental relationships are important — it provides them with evidence on which to base organizational decisions.
