Sense of Belonging Scale

Sense of Belonging Scale


The Sense of Belonging Scale is a measure of belonging first developed for use in an after-school youth development program.  This 5-item scale uses a 5-point Likert scale for each item.  Belonging scores were positively related to actual program attendance over a 6-month period, self-reported attendance in the last week, and protective factors found in communities. Belonging scores were moderately and negatively related to community-based risk factors.
