Board on Children, Youth, and Families Public Seminars and Open Sessions


Project Scope:

The Board on Children, Youth, and Families (BCYF) at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine advances the health, learning, development, resilience, and well-being of all children, youth, and families by mobilizing expertise from multiple disciplines to analyze the best available evidence on critical issues facing children, youth, and families. 

BCYF identifies and addresses current needs and future developments that may advance or harm families and their children and youth from the perinatal period through young adulthood. The board develops evidence-based policies, practices, evaluation approaches, and research; and identifies promising opportunities for holistic, constructive and sustainable change in relevant systems, processes, environments, culture, technology and services that will support our mission.

Description :   

For research on topics related to youth health and well-being to be meaningful, it must also be responsive to the real experiences of youth today. The lived experience – or the personal knowledge about the world gained through first-hand accounts of everyday events rather than through representations constructed by other people – is relevant across all aspects of research, practice, and policy.

Join the Board on Children, Youth, and Families (BCYF) for a seminar that examines the importance of including youth voices in research. The seminar will highlight examples, both from BCYF’s work and from other projects across the country. It will also feature youth speakers who will share about their own experiences participating in research.

  SPEAKERS:

  • Jonathan Todres, Distinguished University Professor & Professor of Law, Georgia State University College of Law (Moderator)
  • Xochitl Amaro, Student, University of Michigan
  • Emily Backes, Senior Program Officer, BCYF
  • Gabrielle Battle, Student, Duke University
  • Tammy Chang, Assistant Professor, Department of Family Medicine, Founding Director, MyVoice, University of Michigan
