RESOURCES

We aim to use the tools of research to deepen understandings of youth wellness in the mind, body, spirit and emotion in order to develop and support guiding principles for practice.

Our Objective

The research objective is to develop an index of measurable indicators of youth wellness that schools can use to make better and more dynamic decisions and investments to support all the children they serve.

Our Researchers

Our research is cross disciplinary, drawing from youth, families, educators, indigenous healers, and a host of dominant systems and fields of research. . By bringing together this uncommon collection of thought partners, we foster rich and complex discussions and debates that advance the discourse about what matters most for youth wellness and how best to measure.
