i4Y is a cross-disciplinary, innovative research hub addressing issues of youth inequity through collaborative research, training, youth voice and community engagement.
i4Y catalyzes innovative interventions, practices and policies to improve equity and well-being for youth locally and worldwide.
Our vision is a world in which all adolescents have access to the structures of opportunity and are free from barriers to fulfill their greatest potential.
We are scholars who work closely with and learn from practitioners, policy-makers, and young people themselves (both in the U.S. and internationally) on issues such as youth violence, homelessness, reproductive health, and educational inequalities.
