Why focus on youth?
The adolescent years build on the foundations established in childhood and set the course across the lifespan. In focusing on "youth," we are referring not only to a specific developmental period, but also to the childhood experiences that influence youth, as well as the early adult years that are determined by successful adolescent passages.
Investments in adolescents, or conversely the failure to address their needs at this stage of development, can result in lifelong consequences for youth and for our society.

Until recently, children with disabilities in Ukraine were educated in rehabilitation centers outside of their communities rather than public schools, and sometimes had to live away from their families.
CFYS Research Fellow Dr. Donna McGhie-Richmond and the Canadian Ukraine Research Team are working on developing inclusive education, “We are helping Ukraine shift their policy and practices around inclusion, as well as how they educate teachers to understand and teach students with diverse needs in their classrooms.”
