Kristen Elmore’s work focuses on the PRYDE Scholars program, which began in 2016 as a way to involve undergraduates in the Program for Research on Youth Development and Engagement (PRYDE). PRYDE’s social and behavioral scientists investigate youth development by partnering with NYS 4-H, the youth arm of the Cornell Cooperative Extension system.
As a Faculty Fellow, Elmore is reimagining the role of PRYDE Scholars as a bridge between research and practice partners. She is leading a new effort to involve PRYDE Scholars in communicating with 4-H community partners about youth development research through a podcast. In addition, she is part of PRYDE’s initiative to include 4-H youth as active participants in the research process, working alongside PRYDE Scholars.
