ICI works year-round to prepare youth for research.Through praxis-centered skill-building and project-based learning in the ICI Research Institute, young people learn about the history of research, are trained in participatory action research, and execute short-term field-based qualitative and quantitative research. During the academic school year, youth researchers support the design, data collection and analysis of the annual Youth Ask Youth Census - a multi-themed experience survey focused on learning about the mental health and wellness, educational, community, and economic needs of New York City’s youth population. By Spring, ICI’s youth research team has prepared extensive reports. Our data is the foundation of a recommendation generation process with other youth organization to develop the NYC Youth Agenda presented at an annual Policy Breakfast for NYC’s political leaders via our co-leadership of the NYC Youth Agenda Coalition.
