Every young person thrives, supported by the caring relationships and inner resources required for a lifetime of wellness.
To promote the wellness of young people and the systems and adults who support them through interdisciplinary research-practice partnerships.
Why This Work Matters
Families, educators, and communities can nurture the development of children and youth when they too are supported in their own wellness and in their efforts to teach and care with strength and expertise. This work is essential in today’s increasingly complicated and challenging world. Our work connects across disciplines, co-designs research with youth and the adults who support them, and partners with practitioners to apply findings in everyday settings to daily lives.
