Youth Development

Adolescence is a period of development between childhood and adulthood characterized by increased experimentation and risk-taking, a tendency to discount long-term consequences, and heightened sensitivity to peers and other social influences. Youth development programs can focus on areas such as cognitive, behavioral and affective skills. These types of programs encourage youth to apply these skills when dealing with daily challenges, problems and decisions.
