Where Research Meets Hope
Each year Kids at Hope sponsors a one week institute that attracts the world’s leading researchers and practitioners in an ongoing effort to bridge research with practice. The Institute explores cutting edge education and child and youth development studies and implementation strategies to better support the success of all young people without exception.
The Institute welcomes participants from the fields of education, child and youth development, juvenile justice, child welfare, law enforcement, recreation and community based youth serving groups.
Kids at Hope is honored to announce Dr. Howard Gardner, Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education & Father of the revolutionary theory of Multiple Intelligence as this year's Featured Research Presenter.
Dr. Gardner's seminal work was first published in 1983 in his book entitled Frames of Mind, which revolutionized the worlds of education and psychology by positing the theory of multiple intelligences. Other remarkable books include: Five Minds for the Future; The Unschooled Mind - How Children Think and Schools Should Teach.
He has twice been selected by Foreign Policy and Prospect magazines as one of the 100 most influential public intellectuals in the world.
Dr. Gardner's work has strongly influenced Kids at Hope conclusions, principles and practices.
