Cohen is the founder and Principal Director of the Black Youth Project (BYP). This Ford Foundation funded research project captures the experiences of African American youth ages 15 to 25. Following this national research project, BYP became a nationwide web platform for scholars, educators, youth, and activists to access the study's research and contribute to the website. More recently, she has developed the GenForward Survey. The GenForward Survey is the only bimonthly national representative survey of Millennials aged 18-34 with oversamples of young adults of color.
