The Coös Youth Study is a unique ten-year research project that follows the same group of youth participants from seventh and eleventh grade up through early adulthood. We are interested in their community attachment, personal aspirations, transitions into adulthood, and factors influencing some people to stay in Coös while others leave.

The information from this study will help local leaders and community members in the North Country better understand what youth want and need from their communities. As the study progresses, we continue to share what we learn at regional conferences and meetings and publish our findings in journal articles and Carsey Institute research briefs, such as those we link you to on our Published Research page.

If you have questions or comments or would like more information about this study, please email the Coös Youth Study project manager at eleanor.jaffee@unh.edu or call (603) 862-1012.
