We are a data-driven organization. Our social science research not only forms the basis of our interventions but also refines how we disseminate and scale up interventions.
The goal of our research is to: develop interventions that can help youth actualize their life outcomes, identify which interventions work and why, and develop and test novel and accessible approaches to dissemination and scaling in order to maximize our impact.
Because we do research for impact, our research is currently focused on identifying the challenges that youths face and developing solutions for these challenges.
Long-term health outcomes of character strength interventions
This will be the first study to test the effects of character strength interventions on such a rich range of health outcomes over an extended period (3 years).
Digital mental health interventions
Our findings will help us evaluate two digital single-session interventions with different theoretical foundations. If effective, such interventions could be disseminated to reduce the public health burden of common mental health problems
An arts-based approach to youth innovation, literacy, citizenship & wellbeing
Findings from a pilot RCT will inform future studies into efficacy and possible dissemination strategies
Improving character strengths, wellness, social functioning and academic achievement in youths
Findings will help inform dissemination strategies for character strength interventions
