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. 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?
