Pathways to Promise: A Funders’ Guide to Positive Youth Development

Publication date: 
December, 2005

Led by the Out of School Time (OST) Task Force, the Children, Youth, and Families (CYF) Working Group of Washington Grantmakers presents this guide to program officers and trustees who evaluate and fund youth development programs. The guide is based on a growing body of research that looks beyond traditional youth outcomes—academic achievement, job placement or the absence of negative behavior—to examine the guiding principles that produce young people who are ready to achieve the goals they envision for themselves. These principles comprise the positive youth development approach.
