Youth Education and Relationship Services (YEARS), 2015 – 2017

The purpose of the Youth Education and Relationship Services (YEARS) Project, awarded to Child Trends, was to better understand the services that federally-funded Healthy Marriage and Relationship Education (HMRE) programs are providing to youth. The project described the organizations implementing HMRE programs, the services they provide, and the youth these programs serve; assessed the alignment of HMRE programs with best practices in the field; and identified promising approaches that grantees are using to better serve youth in HMRE programs. The ultimate aim of this project was to inform future efforts to improve HMRE programs serving youth.
