Healthy Marriage and Relationship Education
Programs for Youth:
An In-Depth Study of Federally Funded Programs

Many first romantic relationships occur during adolescence. These relationships can help shape a variety of experiences (both positive and negative).

Healthy Marriage and Relationship Education (HMRE) programs for youth can shape these experiences by improving youth attitudes and expectations concerning romantic relationships and by helping youth develop key skills to form healthy relationships and avoid unhealthy relationships.

This webinar will provide participants with an in-depth look of federally funded HMRE programs for youth. Quantitative and qualitative data of the programs will be looked at.

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the organizations implementing federally funded HMRE programs for youth and the youth served by these programs
  • Assess the practices identified through research and evaluation to be optimal for serving youth most effectively; and
  • Identify promising approaches used by grantees to better serve youth in HMRE programs

Presenter: Mindy E. Scott, Ph.D., Deputy Program Area Director and Senior Research Scientist with Child Trends
