Evaluation of Families Forward Learning Center: Participant perspectives and student outcomes


The Families Forward Learning Center (FFLC) offers a two-generation learning program for low-income families with children from birth to five years old in Pasadena, California. The program aims to prepare participants—mothers and their children—to succeed in school and life. The program consists primarily of a structured learning environment organized around three curricular strands: early childhood education, parent education, and adult education. FFLC funded the RAND Corporation to conduct a mixed-methods evaluation of their program. This report summarizes findings from retrospective interviews with former program participants on their perceptions of program benefits as well as analyses of student kindergarten and third-grade educational outcomes using Pasadena Unified School District administrative data for the 2010–2011 to 2018–2019 school years.
