Key issues affecting the well-being of children and youth are explored from a global perspective. The interface of cultural values with emerging challenges and opportunities are considered within the contexts of family,school, community, and the broader environment. Models of youth participation and intervention programs are critiqued, and concepts related to risk and resilience are examined cross-culturally. Particular attention is given to gender issues.
