Positive Youth Development Training

Thursday, February 1, 2018, 5:00 PM

Positive youth development (PYD) is an approach, not a program, that can be used to complement and enhance current models of care across the spectrum of prevention, intervention and treatment. This practical lens depicts youth and young adults as resources (and not problems!). This approach depends on the use of five guiding principles: 1. Strengths-based. Taking a holistic approach that focuses on the inherent strengths of an individual, family or community, then building upon them.2.Inclusive. Addressing the needs of all youth by ensuring that our approach is culturally responsive.3.Engaging youth as partners. Ensuring the intentional, meaningful and sustained involvement of youth as equitable partners in the programs, practices and policies that seek to impact them.4.Collaborative. Creating meaningful partnerships within and across sectors to effectively align our work.5.Sustainable. Addressing long-term planning through funding, training, capacity building, professional development and evaluation in order to ensure ongoing support and engagement of youth.
