Institute for Community & Adolescent Resilience (ICAR-US

The Institute is devoted to the implementation of the principles and practices of Integrative Youth Development.

Since 1993 the institute has worked to instill these principles and practices within individual youth, schools and communities. Today, the institute specializes in three areas.

The first is creating measurable supports for each individual youth;

the second is increasing caring and connection within school environments - the fundemental component to any systemic school reform effort;

and the third is working to support caring and connected communities.

The institute offers education, materials, and support to individuals (adults and youth), schools, agencies, organizations, communities, and statewide organizations in their youth development-related work.
