In May, at a meeting hosted by Reclaiming Futures, Karen Pittman, Director of the Forum for Youth Investment and a national leader in youth development work, gave a one-hour presentation on Positive Youth Development—what it is, what it means, and how it can help communities make better decisions about their young people, including those in the juvenile justice system. It was broadcast live and then posted as an archived video. This is a great free resource for youth workers who are new to PYD or want to bone up on their skills.
