At Shift Happens, our goal is not only to help hold the youth we work with accountable but also to mirror that in the work that we do.  We believe in the importance of transparently communicating the metrics and showing how and why coaching makes an impact on the youth that we work with.

One of the foundations that we feel is important is to add to the breadth of coaching research and to be accountable to our funders, supporters and most importantly to the youth we serve.  Coaching is not only a powerful vehicle for change, but our best practices must have a firm scientific foundation. 

As an ongoing part of the project, Shift Happens will be conducting academic research with coaching, criminology and/or psychology experts to produce and publish our findings in a peer-reviewed journal. We will be examining the efficacy of the pilot project in accordance with the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humansxvi.
