Welcome to the Pathways4youth Blog!

Hey everyone!  I’m Anne and I’m a sophomore studying psychology at the University of Michigan.  Working under Dr. Sarah Stoddard as part of the Pathways4youth research team, I am exposed to a lot of noteworthy and interesting articles about positive youth development and the ways in which society is actively searching for methods to help those adolescents struggling, whether it be with substance abuse, violence, or inner conflicts like low self-esteem.

I wanted to start this blog as a medium through which to convey how we as researchers, educators, and innovators, are breaking down barriers.  By instilling in each child a knowledge of their true potential, we can face the challenges together!

This blog will be short snippets and musings on current events dealing with youth development.  Enjoy!

    1. Thanks for bringing this up, Pete! I saw on his website he is co-sponsoring the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013, a great piece of legislation continuing the fight against domestic violence. Kildee has a lot of history with social justice legislation, it’s wonderful that you brought this to attention.
