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. As we adjust to back-to-school time, Youth-Nex continues to support physical distancing (note: we use this term intentionally because we believe social relationships are a critical human need) by highlighting new research and resources on mentoring and the importance of supportive relationships.

Youth-Nex was founded in 2009 to expand and apply the science of positive youth development to address fundamental challenges facing societies around the world. Through science and community partnerships, Youth-Nex enhances the strengths of children and adolescents and prevents developmental risk. Our vision is that our nation’s youth - a rich, often untapped resource - may flourish.
