A Framework for Defining and Promoting Youth Participation

Karen Pittman
January 1, 1991

This publication argues that youth participation is essential for the development of low-income communities and their young people. The author argues that a framework to understand youth participation, its desirability and its outcomes is necessary to prevent participation from becoming an empty slogan. Youth participation in different institutions is analyzed according to goals, reasons for participation, modes of participation and institutional costs.
