New Terrain in Youth Development: The Promise of a Social Justice Approach.
Ginwright, Shawn; Cammarota, Julio
Social Justice, v29 n4 p82-95 2002
Presents a youth development model that addresses structures of power and teaches youth to understand how their opportunities are circumscribed by larger political, economic, and social forces. Critiques two dominant approaches to youth development which have oppressed urban youth of color. The proposed model views youth as agents of social change, fostering "the praxis of critical consciousness and social action" by taking youth through self-awareness, social awareness, and global awareness.
