Global Youth Development Network (GYDN)

Our Work

Global Youth Development Network looks to develop a global network of scholars interested in studying the potential intersection between religiosity and generosity during youth development. We also focus on informing scholars and the general public about the intersection (or not) of religiosity and generosity by harnessing existing data alongside piloting approaches for future initiatives that funds researchers from all over the world to investigate R + G in YD in ways that advance beyond existing scholarship.
