Youth Voice and Participatory Research

Overview

The most pressing high-impact real-world questions to promote adolescent wellbeing need to go beyond traditional methods. They require:

  • community-partnered science
  • integration of quantitative, qualitative, and participatory approaches

I4Y is committed to:

  • being leaders in community-partnered science and innovative analytic methods
  • creatively integrate the best of scholarship with the expertise of those who directly work or affected by the systems under study (e.g. educational, criminal justice, health, housing)
