The Promise of Adolescence – Aug. 1 Meeting and Webcast

There is ample evidence to suggest that changes in brain structure and connectivity that happen in adolescence present young people with unique opportunities for positive, life-shaping development, and for recovery from past adversity.

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will hold a public event on Aug. 1 for their recent report The Promise of Adolescence: Realizing Opportunity for All Youth.

Participants can hear from members of the committee that wrote the report and explore the science of adolescent development and the report’s recommendations for policy and practice.

Thursday, Aug. 1, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. EDT
National Academies’ Keck Center
500 Fifth St., N.W.
Room 100
Washington, D.C. 20001
