ACT for Youth has promoted a positive youth development (PYD) approach since our founding in 2000. We have worked closely with youth-serving organizations, developing training resources and strategies for community collaboration and youth engagement.
Over the years, we have learned that if a new approach is to be adopted and sustained, new policies, practices, and support at the organizational level -- not just the program level -- are essential. Supervisors play a critical role in establishing innovative approaches.
In the new Supervisor's PYD Toolkit, we have gathered tools and resources to support supervisors in establishing and sustaining a positive youth development approach in their organizations.
