Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This important work presents contributions from leading researchers in the field of youth development. These papers address issues around what happens to American youth as they emerge from their pre-teen years. Under the editorship of Peter Benson of Search Institute - a non-profit organization dedicated to the notion that our youth should be seen as assets, rather than liabilities - this book stands as an eloquent summary of the best ways to aid youth in their social, educational, and career development.

Book News Annotation:

In 1998, the Youth Development Funders Group established the Youth Development Directions Project to examine the state of the youth development movement, lay out the key challenges it faces, and suggest directions in which to advance its growth and effectiveness. The ten studies that were hammered out the next couple years cover framing youth development, arenas of action that drive it, and locating it on the ground. A wide range of professions and organizations are involved in the movement, but none of the authors are identified.
