The MLMI Follow-up Project is a longitudinal study following a sample of ethno-racially diverse adolescents (N = 105) over the course of 5 years. This project is designed to test mechanisms by which minoritized adolescents develop bicultural identities and competencies as they progress through high school and beyond.

Given the limited knowledge regarding normative change in bicultural identities and competencies over time, a major goal of this project is to trace adolescent developmental trajectories of bicultural identities and competencies across a 5-year period and to examine antecedents and consequents of these unique trajectories.
