We are thrilled to announce the launch of the YN Blog!
We begin with reports from the Youth-Nex working conference, held in early April, “Enhancing the Positive Youth Development Perspective: A Developmental Intervention Science Framework.” More insights and media from the conference will post shortly, including panel videos.
This week, we also feature reflections from Robert McMahon’s parenting talk and we hear from the SALUD project, an ambitious community intervention focusing on healthy lifestyles.
In the coming weeks, there will be articles by talented researchers both from within Youth-Nex and elsewhere. We’ll offer perspectives from the latest national conferences, insight into our own Works In Progress meetings, updates from work in the community. We’ll feature seed-funded work, research methodology…and much, much more. Youth making a difference in our community will also have a voice here.
Most of all, it is you who will help shape the content by posting what you think is important. Please post freely and let’s create a truly interactive space for exchange on effective youth development.
