Reconnecting America’s Loneliest Generation
$15.96 - $17.96


How do we help young people find a place to belong—where they are noticed, named, and known?

Nearly 1/3 of young people say they have no trusted adults in their lives. 

35% say they have no one to turn to when they feel stressed.

In Belonging: Reconnecting America’s Loneliest Generation, Springtide™ Research Institute shares new research about the landscape of loneliness drawn from our national study. The study has revealed epidemic levels of isolation among young people and has shown why participation does not equate to belonging

The research demonstrates how you can cultivate thriving, relationship-driven programs that truly connect with young people: simply put, you are the solution. The presence of just one trusted adult in the life of a young person cuts severe isolation in half.  Building this sense of true belonging in young people is a process you can easily weave into your work with them.

Using the unique, research-based Belongingness Process outlined in this book, you'll learn what you can do to help young people feel noticednamed, and known to turn the tide on the epidemic of loneliness for the newest generations.
