Schools create progressive communities through outreach programs. Jose Rizal University Graduate School students under Dr. Maria Renita F. Fabic‘s Advanced Research Statistics and Problem Solving and Decision Making classes, conducted three community outreach projects among the Senior High School students of Culiat High School, Alternative Learning System students of Addition Hills Integrated School and prisoners of the Tagaytay City Jail with the theme ―Bringing Education to the Communitieson March and April 2019. The graduate students made this study from planning to implementation to evaluation. In the evaluation, the study determined to know the following: 1) knowledge of the respondents toward JRU outreach projects 2) satisfaction rating on the projects 3) feedback about these projects and 4) proposed interventions on future projects. Findings showed that the respondents were not able to identify their role as beneficiaries in the program. Respondents assessed the projects with a weighted mean of 3.54 interpreted as high assessment level with regard to venue, topic, speaker and materials used. Females assessed differently the projects compared to males. When grouped according to age group, venue, and speaker, assessment varies significantly. Respondents‘comments emphasized the importance of the Research lecture to their studies. Recommended intervention methods are the modification of the training evaluation questionnaire for easy accomplishment by the respondents and youth camp for the students and listening brigade for the prisoners.
