Our Work

Too often, organizations lack the means to connect research and evidence to their everyday programs and practices. Evidence may exist, but it’s not widely known or shared in a practical way. And day to day operations can be overwhelming, offering little time to learn from research, investigate and test new approaches, and document what works.

The mission of SCRI is to elevate the quality and impact of youth-serving organizations by making evidence actionable. SCRI bridges the research to practice to policy gap, walking alongside partners as they strengthen goals, implement high-quality practices, expand to reach more young people, and advocate for improved policies.
