ACT for Youth is committed to promoting the language of positive youth development (PYD) and integrating core PYD principles into the field of youth work. In this section, we connect youth work professionals to PYD training, webinars, and toolkits.
What are the most popular social media platforms among youth? How do the internet and social media affect young people's relationships? How do young people use technology for entertainment and for seeking out health information? Statistics suggest some answers.
Often when we speak of adolescents, sex, and sexuality, we focus on what adults don't want young people to do. How can we frame adolescent sexuality in the context of lifelong health?
The Positive Youth Development 101 curriculum has been updated! 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.
The Update, emailed monthly, connects subscribers to youth development resources, sexual health resources, professional development opportunities, and funding announcements.
