B. Project Background

With generous funding from USAID, the DHARTE project is a three-year activity that builds on AHM’s previous USAID-funded EJEMPLAR (Empowerment and Education for the Advancement and Respect of Youth in Monterrey) in Monterrey, Mexico by adopting best practices and lessons learned and strengthening the model to include the use of audiovisual tools and arts to promote youth development, with a stronger focus in this continued phase on violence prevention. The DHARTE activity supports a comprehensive, multi-intervention prevention model that includes primary and secondary prevention components. The DHARTE technical approach includes a crime and violence assessment and monitoring system that will detect the most at-risk youth in primary and secondary schools. DHARTE applies arts-based interventions to address alternatives to prevent crime and violence, and includes the development of a local hub to pilot international and national best practices and evaluate their impact in the local context.

The DHARTE model incorporates innovative approaches to amplify at-risk youth’s safeguards by integrating a mixed model of interventions with a focus on art therapy and artistic expression along with healthy interpersonal and family relationships. Additionally, DHARTE provides entrepreneurship training for secondary school students based on the development of new skills related to entrepreneurial capacity, particularly leadership and problem-solving skills.

C. Evaluation Rationale
HAI seeks a Contractor to conduct a final evaluation of DHARTE over the life of the project. The evaluation will measure the project’s effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, and potential for sustainability. HAI and the Contractor will collaboratively design the evaluation methodology to investigate research questions that include but are not limited to:

Was the intervention successful in reducing both exposure to and perpetration of crime and violence among the target beneficiaries? What were the key factors that facilitated or hindered violence reduction? Did outcomes related to violence prevention differ by location or gender?

To what extent is the replication model efficient and effective? How do results from intervention replication activities compare to the full project intervention? Is further replication desirable and/or feasible? Are there emerging project practices or experiences that are worth highlighting as good practices or lessons learned which are not captured in the replication model?

What progress did the project make in implementing the midterm recommendations? What effect did the midterm recommendations have on the effectiveness and impact of the project’s interventions?

What are the key project achievements that will be sustained beyond the life and the context of the project at the community, organizational, and participant level?

D. Evaluation Design & Methodology
The design and methodology applied to this evaluation should generate the highest quality and most credible evidence to answer the evaluation questions listed above, and should primarily focus on assessing project activities implemented under DHARTE. Prior to the start of data collection, the Contractor will develop and present, for HAI review and approval, a written methodology that details the evaluation activities, evaluation tools, and data analysis plan for this evaluation. The written methodology should be guided by a participatory approach to evaluation, and will be comprised of a mix of quantitative and qualitative tools appropriate to the evaluation’s research questions. HAI expects the methodology to include, but not be limited to, the following activities:

A desk review of relevant information on the status of primary and secondary youth crime and violence prevention in Mexico, the social and political context of the target population, and strategies to measure youth crime and violence prevention efforts
A review of all relevant project documentation (in English and Spanish)
A review of project data (please note that data from the final ERI installment will not be available until XXX
Site visits to occur from May 28 – June 14 (dates set to coincide with the end of the school year)
Data collection methods and tools, including a pre-ion of key informant interviews and focus groups

HAI will provide the evaluation team access to all relevant project documents.
