Time for Change Logo

Apply to the Youth Research Council (YRC) and be a changemaker!

The YRC will act as consultants to local and regional organizations, school districts, and governments as they conduct research about youth. We will conduct our own research projects that will have an impact on the lives of youth in Northern Virginia. The Youth Research Council will advise university faculty and students on how to conduct research that speaks to the needs and builds on the strengths of youth. Our work will take an explicitly anti-racist, inclusive stance. Be part of the change you seek!

Applicants must be in high school grades 9-12 and commit to attend all 11 meetings missing no more than two.
