Class Presentations

During the last class meetings of the semester, each student will be asked to organize and lead a relatively brief class discussion (10 to 15 minutes). The discussion will illustrate the use of ADS ideas in programs or policies designed to enhance or better understand the proposed relation between positive youth development and youth leadership. To facilitate students' preparation for the class presentation, the presentation will be based on a facet of the second exam in which students will discuss a program or policy that seeks to enhance PYD through engaging youth in community leadership positions.

Below please find successful examples of student presentations.
