Project Legacy Evaluation
Children's Hospital of Los Angeles (Administration for Children and Families, Family & Youth Services Bureau)
ETR serves as the external evaluator to our partner Children's Hospital of Los Angeles on Project Legacy. Project Legacy is an adaptation of Project AIM (Adult Identity Monitoring) for homeless youth. Project AIM is a group level intervention based on the Theory of Possible Selves, which proposes that individuals are motivated in their present life by mental images of possible future selves, and that a person’s motivation is determined by a balance of positive and negative ways people see themselves in the future. Children’s Hospital Los Angeles will develop the adapted program and will be evaluated among homeless youth age 15-19 in Los Angeles and San Diego Counties.
