WIT-Y Perú

The Well-being Indicator Tool for Youth (WIT-Y) was designed by Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare (CASCW) at the University of Minnesota for US youth aged 15-21 years who currently are in or in the past have had contact with the child welfare system.  The tool has been translated and culturally adapted for work in Peru, WIT-Y Perú. The WIT-Y Perú consists of three components (assessment, snapshot and blueprint), which are available below. Please contact HBI for further information on how to best implement and utilize this resource.
