PLEA

Research Projects

Alongside our research partners (Douglas College, John Howard Society of the North Island (JHNI), McCreary Centre Society and North Island College) we have created a research program that enriches the learning experience of students, while producing community-based, academically rigorous research projects.  These projects focus on evaluating youth and adult services, and on understanding youth and adult health.
