The Program for Research on Youth Development and Engagement (PRYDE): Integrating Research and Practice
Jennifer Agans, BCTR

Thursday, December 8, 2016
12:00 - 1:00 PM
Beebe Hall, 2nd floor conference room

The Program for Research on Youth Development and Engagement (PRYDE) is a relatively new project in the BCTR. Working in partnership with New York State 4-H Youth Development programs, PRYDE strives to understand and improve the lives of today’s youth and promote positive youth development through innovative research and evidence-based approaches. In its first year, PRYDE has received considerable support and encouragement from both campus and county. In this talk Agans will discuss the program’s strategies, progress, and ongoing learning about the process of research-practice collaboration.

Jennifer Agans, Ph.D., is a research associate in the BCTR and the assistant director of the Program for Research on Youth Development and Engagement (PRYDE). Her work with PRYDE focuses on building capacity for campus-county partnerships between researchers at Cornell and 4-H programs across New York State. This work builds on her interests in translational and applied youth development research and the ways in which out-of-school time activities can foster positive youth development.

This talk is open to all. Lunch will be served. Metered parking is available in the Botanical Gardens lot across the road from Beebe Hall. No registration or RSVP required except fo groups of 5 or more. We ask that larger groups email Patty at letting us know of your plans to attend so that we can order enough lunch.
