Abstract

This brief from the Urban Institute discusses how the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership (NNIP) is reaching out to young people through local NNIP community work. In collaboration with schools and youth programs, NNIP is training students to use data and advocacy to address inequities in health, housing, and employment. NNIP is also promoting youth voices through the arts. (author abstract modified)
