From Positive Youth Development to Social Justice Youth Development
Dec 14 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Positive youth development (PYD) is the preeminent theory and practice model for working with youth. In positive youth development, adults and communities seek to strengthen known protective factors among young people so that young people can thrive and become productive adults.

Social Justice Youth Development (SJYD) goes a step further to address the social and economic forces (racism, classism, sexism, adultism, homophobia, xenophobia, ableism) that oppress young people and complicate “normative” developmental patterns. Social justice youth development incorporates many aspects of positive youth development (knowledge and skill building), and also acknowledges and leverages youth’s experiences with discrimination, inequality, and negative stereotypes. A goal of SJYD is to understand power, privilege, and oppression in order to disrupt existing power structures and advocate for transformative change.

As a result of this webinar, participants will be able to describe two theories (PYD and SJYD) and consider their similarities, and differences.

Given the diversification of youth and communities, a SJYD framework is an important consideration to achieving health equity and justice for and with young people.

Learning Objectives
Describe positive youth development and social justice youth development theory
Explain similarities and differences between PYD and SJYD
