7th Annual Youth Development Research Conference, Ithaca, NY May 31-June 1

Fran was invited to speak at an upcoming conference in Ithaca and just learned that there will be a table at the conference to recruit for studies that might be relevant to the youth development practitioners attending the conference. These practitioners largely work with youth (grades K through 12) in 4-H programs throughout New York State. If you are recruiting participants for any studies that might benefit from collaborating with youth development programs, I request that you send me a 3 sentence blurb that includes your target population, a general study description, how long it takes to participate, any incentives, and the name and email of a contact person. Please send at your earliest convenience and I will forward to the conference organizer.
