The Positive Youth Development 101 curriculum has been updated for 2021! Use this free curriculum -- ACT for Youth's most popular resource -- to provide an orientation to the PYD approach to new youth workers, supervisors, funders, and community volunteers.
Just before her retirement, ACT for Youth's Jutta Dotterweich was interviewed for Doing Translational Research, a podcast series from the Bronfenbrenner Center at Cornell University. Jutta reflects on the challenges and joys of a career working collaboratively to make positive community change.
Effective youth programs provide young people with the opportunity to establish positive relationships with adults. In this section of the Supervisor's PYD Toolkit, we offer resources for promoting developmental relationships between program staff and participants and between supervisors and supervisees.
Here ACT for Youth provides basic information as well as curated resources regarding teen dating violence and how to help young people build positive relationships.
The Update, emailed monthly, connects subscribers to youth development resources, sexual health resources, professional development opportunities, and funding announcements.
