Evaluating your after school program can be challenging. You're empowering your young people to become stronger and more capable, but how do you evaluate that?

Merge co-director Bill Rossi founded and directed a creative mentoring nonprofit that served over 2,500 challenged youth and adults. Not finding an evaluation tool that met their needs, he worked with other educators, mental health professionals, and a programmer to develop one that could serve all types of programs.

Merge Education was founded in 2008 to disseminate the student evaluation software and Rossi's mentoring approach.
