People in the youth field—those working with and doing research related to young people, such as policymakers, funders, researchers, and practitioners—should be aware of the distinctive but interrelated domains of youth well-being that need nurturing. The attempt to measure youth well-being is not new, but the youth field needs to continue refining how it defines and measures these domains. Such refinement will provide a stronger toolkit to set priorities, establish baseline levels, and track progress over time. In this fact sheet we present eight domains of youth well-being. We aim to motivate readers to incorporate new domains and related measures in their work to get a fuller picture of the well-being of young people.
