PbS measures and monitors facility practices by collecting and reporting data from administrative records and survey responses from youths, staff and families to provide a holistic picture of the conditions and quality of life in residential facilities, highlights the practices that are effective in promoting youths’ healthy maturation and identifies those that are not. PbS data is reported every April and October. PbS trains staff to use the information to change practices and support reforms implementing the adolescent development approach.
PbS 25th Anniversary Spotlight: Kids Got Talent Contest
A throwback to the very first montage of the PbS Kids Got Talent Contest in honor of PbS’ 25th Anniversary Celebration. This contest was created five years ago as an opportunity for youths to be creative and share their abilities. Please note that the posted deadline for entries is March 31, 2020; however, we will continue to accept entries in April given the national state of emergency affecting our PbS community. If you plan to upload entries and will need more time after March 31, please do not hesitate to reach out to the PbS Help Desk.
