Welcome to the Youth Voice Project.
"Just ask the kids."
More than 13,000 teens in 31 schools took the Youth Voice project survey. We have now completed our book describing the results of this project and a collection of practical, research-based strategies for supporting mistreated youth, building positive bystander action, and supporting positive inclusive school cultures.
Here is a brief summary of the research, what we learned from bullied youth about the effectiveness of different strategies, and a few of the recommendations we developed from that data.
We have made a series of supplementary materials available to help you learn more after you read the book.
