Priscilla Sanchez

Abstract


Strategies to Scale Up Social Programs: Pathways, Partnerships and Fidelity (Larson, Dearing, & Backer, 2017) summarizes a comparative case study of 45 social programs that scaled up. Three pathways, various partnerships, and fidelity considerations are discussed. This resource, commissioned by The Wallace Foundation, will be helpful to youth development organization leaders desiring to scale up. Youth development practitioners will benefit from the discussion on fidelity considerations in implementation.
