Advancing and Measuring Well-being for Youth and Young Adults: the Youth Thrive™ Survey

Join the US Center for the Study of Social Policy on November 14, 2018 from 3:00-4:00 p.m. EST to learn more about an innovative survey designed to be used by organizations serving youth and young adults ages 12-26 to measure and improve their well-being. The Youth Thrive™ Survey is a valid instrument that measures the presence, strength, and growth of the Youth Thrive™ protective and promotive factors (PPFs) that have been identified in research literature to advance healthy development and well-being and mitigate the impacts of trauma and negative life experiences. Presenters will discuss the utility of the Youth Thrive™ Survey in informing case planning, evaluating the effectiveness of programs that support young people, and in continuous quality improvement efforts. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and exchange ideas with other jurisdictions exploring implementation of the survey.
