Community Youth Development: Programs, Policies, and Practices focuses on positive methods for youth development that are rapidly supplanting the traditional deficit-oriented, problem-reduction approaches. Edited by eminent scholars Francisco A. Villarruel, Daniel F. Perkins, Lynne M. Borden, and Joanne G. Keith, this accessible volume provides practical tools and models for developing community-wide initiatives that strengthen protective factors, build competencies, and focus on thriving indicators. Examining the needs of multiple audiences, programs, and policies, each chapter contributes to an overall understanding of the how and why of community youth development.

Designed for upper division undergraduate and graduate students in human development, family studies, and education, Community Youth Development: Programs, Policies, and Practices is also an invaluable resource for researchers, practitioners, and policy advocates for youth and community development.
