Each year, the Youth Development Research Update creates a forum for practitioners and Cornell University researchers to discuss issues relevant to the well-being and development of children and adolescents. Research presentations will be followed by ample time for participant questions. Throughout the event, roundtable discussions will provide practitioners an opportunity to reflect on the presented material. Together we will ask:

  • How can practitioners use research findings for interventions or practices that benefit young people within various social settings?
  • Which questions emerge from the field that researchers have not explored and need to address?
