YDEV 270 - Youth Development Across Contexts

The goal of Positive Youth Development is to develop multifacted programs that help youth grow into mature and successful adults. According to Ferguson (2007) PYD is an increasing popular policy, curricular, and programmatic approach that allows schools, youth servicing organizations, and community partners to infuse youth development principles throughout their programs, through various contexts. In this course, students explore these contexts through experiential and hands on learning. Through class work and relationships with community partners, students gain firsthand knowledge of positive youth development programs across various contexts.
