This session will begin with a discussing positive youth development indicators in comparison to risk indicators, and demonstrate how to identify indicators from existing community-level data sets. This comprehensive approach to community-level needs assessments allows youth development organizations to easily collect data from a diversity of demographics and topic strands, assess youth needs with greater clarity and accuracy, and intentionally align desired program outcomes with the data-supported needs of youth. Concerns with using existing data sets will also addressed; including relevancy, accuracy, and geographic constraints. In addition, the facilitators will share how they identified, collected, evaluated and applied positive youth development indicator data towards holistic, programmatic action.Depth of Knowledge: Introductory
