Brief Program Description

Join us as the co-directors of the National Youth-At-Risk Center explore how the 5H (Head, Heart, Hands, Health, and Home) protective factors for well-being and other conceptual frameworks may be used to construct “national standards” for “at-risk” youth. The 5H standards address the broad question of how to best foster the well-being of youth, especially youth placed at risk. Traditionally, educational standards have narrowly focused on students’ academic achievement and neglected the holistic development of their wellbeing. We will share a review of literature about existing standards that are relevant to youth placed at risk, examine the value of these various standards, and consider their possible applications. We invite your input in this timely process of constructing national standards for “at risk” youth.
