Youth-Nex is dedicated to using our platform to amplify the voices and lived experiences of adolescents who have been marginalized, to providing a venue for scholars and practitioners whose work is furthering the goal of racial justice, and to support a developmental science that is not only anti-racist, but is in the service of dismantling white supremacy. At Youth-Nex, we believe that youth development issues are social justice issues. As we continue to chart our way forward, Youth-Nex will continue to share some virtual knowledge and return to our archives of past resources during summer.
