Participatory research is an approach to and framework for creating knowledge where those most directly affected by an issue or intervention take the lead in the study of it.

This webinar for Second Chance Month 2022, led by the Evaluation and Sustainability TTA team and featuring reentry program practitioners, provided an overview of participatory research and discussed different ways that reentry programs can engage impacted populations (e.g., formerly incarcerated persons, past program participants) in the evaluation of their programs. It discussed key benefits, potential challenges and how to navigate them, and examples of successful implementation.
