Improving lives through research
For over 30 years the Social Development Research Group (SDRG) has sought to investigate and promote healthy behaviors and positive social development in youth and adults.
SDRG is a recognized leader in the field of prevention research. Our efforts to understand how risk and protective factors influence development have resulted in hundreds of articles in peer-reviewed journals and led to the development of tested and effective interventions.
SDRG interventions are designed to strengthen bonds between families, schools, and communities with the goal of improving youth outcomes and preventing problem behavior.
SDRG’s work has enriched lives, influenced policy, and strengthened communities across the world.
