December 27, 2002

The goal of this report is to provide readers with information about youth development and assessment strategies that will help them make informed decisions for assessment in their communities/programs. To this end, the authors provide a three-part definition of youth development that includes the relationship between youth development and prevention. In addition, reviews of four prominent youth development assessment tools and reports from communities that have used these tools are provided.
