Youth research is significant because it encourages and allows young people to be inquisitive about the issues that interests and influences them. Furthermore, their research findings promote veritable changes in various research areas. Without research,the intellectual development of the youth will be drawn back by limitations and our society will remain in darkness. Therefore, it is necessary to acknowledge the fact that research holds many advantages for our youth. First of all, research develops life skills such as leadership qualities, public speaking skills, decision-making abilities, an increase in self- esteem, interpersonal skills, educational enrichment, forward thinking etc. Secondly,humanitarian service providers working in youth programs are mainly part-time employees who do not receive the benefits or earnings associated with a full-time job, therefore, conducting social research would allow them to earn a certain amount of money. Besides the points mentioned, sociological research provides us with the understanding that we need to deal with social problems or key social issues. Therefore, the purpose of research is to inform ourselves and the wider society about social issues, to establish an action plan and to acquire valuable experience in sociological research. So, research holds a great importance for youth development and is a fundamental aspect of any society’s social revolution.
