Stand Up For Our Children is a W.K. Kellogg Foundation-funded initiative to foster civic participation to empower our parents/families to improve the quality of life for our region's most vulnerable children and to increase the organizational capacity of nonprofits funded. The initiative's Year One evaluation sought to learn about changes in participants' awareness, knowledge and acquisition of skills. The Year Two evaluation looked at how participants began to apply these knowledge and skills and take action as individuals, organizations and networks. This evaluation considered the Stand Up initiative's activities and impact from September 2013 to August 2014.
