Youth Development Outcomes Compendium

Research BriefOct 1 2001

The purpose of the Youth Development Outcomes Compendium is to provide people working in the field of youth development with a ready resource to identify the range of youth outcomes that programs and communities may seek to affect, maintain or improve. We also provide a common language and a common set of measures for these outcomes. Finally, we present evidence about the importance and the malleability or susceptibility to change as a result of programmatic intervention of each outcome.
