March 2004Vol. 5, No. 2Research Study: Spirituality in Youth Services

The New England Network for Child, Youth and Family Services and the National Resource Center for Youth Development are conducting a national study to identify promising practices in spiritual programming for adolescents. Researchers are currently seeking information from agencies that provide spiritual programming to adolescents aged 14 to 22 years. Spiritual interventions may be religious or secular, but the agencies should have been providing such services for at least 3 years. Researchers will select 8 to 10 agencies for onsite visits, interviews, and review of evaluation data. Results will be disseminated in 2005.
