Research

Youth Development Instrument
Youth achieve positive developmental outcomes when they learn skills to negotiate adversity and establish healthy behaviours that promote well-being in early life. The Youth Development Instrument (YDI) is a survey of students that will identify the individual and contextual resources, opportunities, and practices that foster or hinder positive youth development. It is a collaborative project with researchers from SFU and the Human Early Learning Partnership (HELP-UBC), school district and community partners, policymakers and practitioners, and young people themselves.

Grade 11 students will be provided a one-time survey and with the option to provide contact details for a follow-up survey. We will build on HELP’s Early (Kindergarten) and Middle Years (Grades 4, 7) Development instruments by asking questions related to social and emotional learning, physical and mental well-being, school experiences, time use, and connectedness, and add new developmentally appropriate questions focusing on youth purpose, future goals, and romantic relationships. We will use linked data to follow student trajectories for important outcomes such as high school graduation, health services utilization and mental well-being.
