Get Teen Input
If you want your work to be effective for young people, you need to understand them. Our youth voice program lets you easily engage teens to get high-quality feedback on your research, products, and services.
Why Center Youth Voice?
Young people’s perspectives should drive the design of any experience built for them. By engaging teens directly, you can ensure that your study, product, or service is developmentally, contextually, and culturally appropriate and relevant to them
“Our partnership with CLIP allowed our team to co-create a national survey on digital technologies and youth well-being that was incredibly nuanced and relatable. The young people enrolled in CLIP were so insightful and wise, and the Character Lab staff made the process of engaging with them effortless.”
Students are ready to share timely input in writing or through interviews.
A Proven Resource
Participants in our CLIP program (whom we affectionately call “CLIPsters”) have provided meaningful feedback in over 1,500 sessions over the past five years. A group of 150 students in grades 9-12 (ages 14-18) from communities across the United States, CLIPsters represent a wide variety of experiences and identities. The program is diverse across race, gender, socioeconomic status, gender identity, neuro-ability, GPA, home language, and other characteristics.
CLIPsters are trained to bring their unique perspectives, preferences, motivators, and context-specific knowledge to their work with you. Each year, CLIPsters attend a week-long training to learn about design thinking, research methodologies, and how to give effective feedback.
How Youth Voice Can Increase Your Impact
Our CLIP program is designed for success across various industries.
“It’s so important, now more than ever, that we are studying the behaviors and habits of younger generations, and no one knows how to get to teens better than teens themselves.”
