Acts of Kindness Among Youth

Acts of Kindness Among Youth

What we’re doing

In collaboration with Dr. Andrew Fuligni from The University of California, Los Angeles, we are expanding the research showing health-protective benefits from “acts of kindness” interventions. We are doing this by exploring the impacts of an “acts of kindness” intervention among adolescents on their biological and psychological well-being.

Why it matters

The insights gained from this project will help inform whether and how to integrate kindness and other prosocial strategies into technology products to improve youth health.
