ACT for Youth
Let's face it, young people are often overlooked. I guess adults don't remember that it's frustrating to be ignored. Young people have some really brilliant ideas, but if no one pays attention, there's no way for them to be heard. That's why adults need to let young people be more involved and have a greater say in how things work.

Featured Resources
Emailed monthly, the Update connects subscribers to positive youth development resources, adolescent health resources, professional development opportunities, and funding announcements.
Young people's progress toward goals may be helped or hindered by their mindsets. In this article, Kristen Elmore discusses the research into "growth" and "fixed" mindsets as it applies to adolescents.
In this article, Janis Whitlock and colleagues summarize what research tells us about three ways young people use technology to explore sexuality: pornography, sexting, and mobile dating applications.
Romantic relationships have much to teach adolescents. Here we discuss their developmental significance, prevalence, and typical sequence, as well as influences on relationship quality.
In this section of our youth site, we suggest steps young people can take to become the kind of leaders they want to be.
