Developing the Future:


In this showcase, we will dive into eight principles for youth development. Our goal for facilitating this workshop is to help each participant to explore the purposes for developing the youth, the challenges that today's youth face, their complexities, and how developing them can benefit our communities and the world. In this showcase, you will also learn the components of youth development, the importance of advocating for the youth, strategies and principles for developing youth in urban communities, and the potential successes and outcomes for such endeavors.
