Transitioning to adulthood is not always easy and can be especially difficult for youth who are vulnerable. Youth can be vulnerable when they are critically ill, homeless and pregnant, or when they are aging out of the foster care system. A best practice guide for working with each of these vulnerable populations was created using Positive Youth Development principles. These guides also include evidence-based information regarding best practices, job requirements, duties, programs and approaches, etc. The best practice guides are meant to help prepare future youth workers to encourage positive youth development in our youth.
