The VOICE Research Project is a Community-University Research Alliance. A key dimension of the VOICE Research Project is the development of community relationships and authentic partnerships. Our partners have contributed more than $3.3 million in financial and in-kind contributions. Community participants make up 60% of the VOICE Research Project in-kind contributions. VOICE Research Project partnerships and collaborative research illustrate the desire of the universities, communities, government and employers to work together to achieve success for our children and youth.
