The Ethics of Program Design in Youth Development

“This means asking young people directly what they hope for themselves and what they have to give the world. We need to challenge and equip them to reflect deeply on these questions because if they aren’t used to being asked, they probably don’t know how to set purpose-driven goals and devise a plan for reaching them. When they do speak up, we must listen—reserve our judgments and really listen—and be as resourceful and supportive as possible. We need to open their eyes to a world of options, make them feel welcome in places they’ve never been, and share with them the unwritten rules that will enable them to navigate unfamiliar terrain.”
