Forming Partnerships to Promote Positive Youth Development and Community Change: The New York State ACT for Youth Initiative (Workshop 149)
In this session, presenters will describe the experience of a university-based Resource Center of Excellence in helping communities form partnerships to promote positive youth development and prevent abuse, violence, and risky sexual behavior among young people 10 to 19 years of age. This work is part of ACT (Assets Coming Together) for Youth, a New York State initiative which aims to strengthen communities so that they are more supportive and nurturing environments for young people.
