Positive Youth Development…

  • Considers the whole young person, not just a single characteristic or problem.

  • Focuses on the positive outcomes we desire for young people, not the negative outcomes we hope to prevent.

  • Youth have to be seen as central actors in their own development.

  • Emphasizes the importance of environment and creating opportunities.

  • Is dependent on family and community development as it occurs in the context of the family, community and society.

  • Programs must be available to all young people.

Framework for Healthy Youth What is health?

  • Health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease, or infirmity” (WHO, 2006).

  • "Wellbeing is a state of being with others,

    • where human needs are met,

    • where one can act meaningfully to pursue one's goals, and

    • where one enjoys a satisfactory quality of life”

  • A combination of physical, emotional, social and mental well-being is vital to achieve overall health.
