Organizational support is required if positive youth development (PYD) is to gain traction. Supervisors and program directors play an important role in providing this support, but where should they begin? ACT for Youth has developed a new resource toolkit to help organizations engage and surround young people with positive experiences, relationships, and environments.
Developed for youth-serving program providers funded by the NYS Department of Health, this manual offers guidelines, tips, and recipes for providing delicious, healthy food in program settings.
The Update, emailed monthly, connects subscribers to youth development resources, sexual health resources, professional development opportunities, and funding announcements.
Social and emotional learning nurtures the ability to identify our own feelings and understand how our feelings and thoughts influence what we do. On this page you'll find resources to help promote self-awareness among youth.
This resource offers selected statistics on basic demographics, including gender, race, ethnicity, geographic settings, family income, and homelessness for youth and children in the United States.
