Workgroup Information

Diversity in Youth Development

Summary ANR academics are developing and/or implementing youth development programs designed to reach underrepresented youth, families and communities. As such, a workgroup is being formed to provide a formal structure to nurture and reflect on approaches to reaching underrepresented populations, consider and develop effective models to pilot or scale up, and identify professional development opportunities needed to support staff and volunteers in addressing issues of social and geographic inequality.
