The present study includes a program evaluation to assess the extent to which a community based multiethnic program, specifically the Outreach & Engagement (O&E) Program of the Multi-Ethnic Collaborative of Community Agencies (MECCA) adhered to Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) principles as intended in its development and implementation. A post-reflection discussion, which included questions that were guided by the Community-Based Participatory Research Evidence-Based Curriculum, with the O&E Program Evaluator determined the extent to which each CBPR principle was fulfilled. Thematic findings from the post-reflection discussion highlighted many strengths, as well as areas of improvement within the research-community partnerships. MECCA’s O&E Program proved to successfully apply and incorporate CBPR principles within a county-funded framework, as well as demonstrated ways to simultaneously serve and collaborate with a multitude of multi-ethnic communities. Additional research is needed with applying CBPR principles simultaneously with various multiethnic communities and its’ potential influence on the development, implementation, and evaluation of CBPR programs.
