Toward Positive Youth Development

Transforming Schools and Community Programs

Edited by Marybeth Shinn and Hirokazu Yoshikawa

This book provides detailed strategies for transforming social settings to harness their power to promote positive youth development. The book shows schools and youth programs how to assess social settings and use data to motivate and guide change efforts and daily practices. Many chapters also focus on youth who are marginalized for reasons of race, ethnicity, immigration status, or sexual orientation, and show how settings can be transformed to improve the quality of experiences for all youth.
