Engaging High-Risk or At-Risk Youth


Many youths are labelled at-risk or high-risk by service providers, the school system, the criminal justice system, and society as a whole. Examine concepts of 'at-risk/high-risk' youth and its implications, the issues that create marginalization and stigmatization and the ways to minimize these; and how community agencies (e.g., government, non-profit) respectfully engage youth as an agent for change in, and a positive contributor to, the community through building a positive relationship with them. Understand the views, voices, and experiences of a select group of youths who will co-instruct this course with the principal instructor.
