Research Projects in Progress
Currently two research projects are in progress within the National Initiative on Adolescent Catechesis.
- National Study on Youth and Religion Wave 3 Data – Ministry Training Source and the research team from Instituto Fe y Vida are completing their analysis of the Wave 3 data from the landmark National Study on Youth and Religion. This data will provide insights on the outcomes of adolescent catechesis in the study participants as young adults. The report from this analysis is expected to be available by late September 2010.
- Baseline ACRE Study– John Poggio of the University of Kansas will be conducting a random sampling of parish religious education programs and Catholic high schools using the ACRE assessment to provide a portrait of where young people are currently at regarding their knowledge and practice of their faith. The results of this study will be available in 2011. Click to learn more.
