Research and Resources

YDEKC connects leaders in the youth development field with research relevant to their work.

We provide our members and partners with practical tools in the areas of non-profit management, program evaluation, school and community partnerships, and whole child outcomes (i.e. youth skills and dispositions). We also connect leaders in youth development with emerging research, and work with local and national partners to advance field-level knowledge.
