In recent years, there has been a significant increase in international debates, research and socio-educational programmes focusing on youth empowerment. One of the main issues with this concept is related to how it is measured and evaluated. Evaluating socio-educational actions and projects is crucial in order to design, implement and improve educational practices that help young people to empower themselves. This article presents the process of building and validating a rubric, within the framework of the HEBE Project, for the evaluation of youth empowerment actions and projects. The methodological process consists of three phases: (1) Design of the rubric; (2) Expert validation by 17 practitioners from different fields, 3 experts in evaluation and 5 young people; (3) And a comparison by means of a pilot test with 20 projects or socio-educational services aimed at youth empowerment, in which 63 professionals participate. The results show evidence of validity and reliability of the rubric in order to evalu ate the quality of socio-educational practices, and also to design and implement actions that focus on youth empowerment. It is noted for being a validated and useful instrument for making educational assessments related to youth empowerment, and for its usefulness in generating processes of reflection that become the basis for rethinking and improving pedagogical practices.
