Youth Engagement + Health Promotion

After nearly two decades of exciting action-oriented research, the Youth Voices Research Group has disbanded after a successful run as a globally recognized and leading youth engagement research unit focused on health. Thanks to all our staff, partners, and the thousands of youth that we’ve engaged over more than 18 years in operation as one of the few centres devoted to youth engagement, technology and health promotion in the world.

It was fun.

The Youth Voices Research Group was a research and innovation team based at the University of Toronto. Founded in what is now the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto as TeenNet, Youth Voices Research Group evolved into a leading applied research centre focused on youth engagement, information technology, and health promotion.

Our projects have included the Smoking Zine, CyberIsle, Youth4Health and Food4Health as well as the Global Youth Voices initiative.
