Youth Development Studies (minor)

Youth Development Studies

Youth Development Studies

Today’s youth are dynamic, challenging, diverse, and teeming with potential. Our communities need to accept responsibility in fostering their success and preparation for a successful adulthood. A youth development leader who wants to facilitate the development of this age group must be able to advocate effectively in the community for youth and create opportunities for their success. This undergraduate minor program provides the knowledge and skills to build design, deliver and evaluate relevant youth programs and experiences and collaborate successfully with educational institutions, community agencies and organizations, and business and corporate partners.

Students are required to attend a weekly synchronous class in Adobe Connect for 90 minutes (see class schedule for time).
