Who We Are

We are a community of researchers, practitioners, and educators who are invested in positive development among youth of color in urban communities. One of our goals is to partner with community organizations that work to support the health and well-being of urban youth of color. We also provide research and professional development training opportunities for students and consultation for schools and community-based youth serving organizations.
