The Foundation supports research to understand and improve settings for youth ages 8 to 25 in the United States. We appreciate that this is a relatively new area for research. To that end, we have written several documents outlining our conceptual framework, which are below.
In addition, we have collected and supported work on measuring social settings as well as the design and analysis of group-randomized trials. We also provide a consultation service and Optimal Design software to help design such trials.
