Health & Human Development Program
about the program
The Health & Human Development Program (HHDP) promotes positive youth development, school success, and well-being through research, evaluation, and technical assistance projects.
With deep expertise on youth risk behaviors and resilience factors, staff work with schools and communities to implement effective approaches to preventing problem behaviors and providing youth with the supports needed to succeed in school, career, and life.
The U.S. Department of Education identified the HHDP-developed Healthy Kids School Climate Student/Staff/Parent Survey Suite as a model for providing data to guide improvements in learning conditions and supports. Data from the surveys have significantly increased understanding of the health and socio-emotional factors influencing academic performance.
HHDP significantly expanded its work in school climate, and career and adult education, recognizing the importance of these two areas in student achievement and overall life success.
