Study: Youth value spirituality

Researcher Eugene C. Roehlkepartain, co-director of the Center for Spiritual Development in Childhood and Adolescence, Minneapolis, said youth aged 12 to 25 view spirituality as an important part of their lives.

The center’s two-year study followed more than 7,000 youth from 16 countries on six continents.
