Astroth, Kirk A.
Journal of Extension, v31 p22-25 Fall 1993
Puts the label "at risk" in perspective as it relates to youth. Points out that today's adolescents have lower rates of suicide, unwed pregnancy, drug abuse, smoking, and drunk driving than young and middle-aged adults. Suggests that extension youth education moves toward a condition-focused, resiliency model that recognizes the vitality and strength of youth. (Author/JOW)
