Project CARES is a new research study about racial and cultural climate in Chicago youth programs. We are especially interested in how issues of race, diversity, and cultural climate are addressed in urban youth programs and how youth of color experience youth programs. The pilot study is partially funded through a Scholar Grant from the Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy at UIC (PI: Brittian). This study was approved by the UIC IRB #2015-0170.
If you are affiliated with a youth program or youth-serving organization in Chicago and would like to learn more about contributing to our project, please visit the Resources page.
