Empowerment Model

Positive Youth Development Model

Community Works staff and volunteers use the Positive Youth Development Model as a framework when providing services to homeless and runaway youth.

The philosophy of the Positive Youth Development Model is to empower youth to successfully move beyond their current situations by supporting them in developing a sense of competency and industry, a feeling of connectedness to others and to society and a belief in the control over their life and a stable identity.

Through the Empowerment Model, staff build on the assets that each youth has in order to assist them in overcoming problems and obstacles that are preventing them from leaving the streets.
