Measuring Flourishing Among Youth:
July 19 Webinar Presents Findings from the Flourishing Children
Positive Indicators Project
Historically, researchers have focused on negative indicators of child wellbeing, largely ignoring positive indicators of children's outcomes. Child Trends is leading an initiative, with support from the John Templeton Foundation, to develop rigorous, brief indicators of flourishing among children and youth. Establishing robust indicators of well-being can help decision makers better understand how children and youth develop, set positive goals, and provide measures to monitor and assess positive outcomes in evaluation studies.
