The Youth Services program is a unique applied program for students interested in working with adolescents. The Youth Services minor prepares students for careers in public and non-profit social service agencies designed to assist youth and their families.

Students learn to use evidence-based knowledge of developmental issues facing contemporary youth to build a developmental rationale for decisions regarding youth services. They will master techniques that help to build partnerships with youth, their families and youth services colleagues. Youth Services students assess the functioning of current Youth Service agencies and practice planning Youth Services to address contemporary challenges. In addition, students learn to advocate for effective social policy for youth and their families.
