Exploring positive youth development in diverse contexts

Assistant Professor John Geldhof has received a grant funded by Templeton World Charity Foundation to explore how positive youth development manifests in diverse contexts. Specifically, John and his research team will explore how character strengths and other indicators of well-being can best be measured in three Kenyan populations: urban school children, rural school children and street children living in Nairobi. The grant also forms a new connection between CPHHS and Maasai Mara University in Kenya.
