This toolkit presents selected web-based resources that explain and describe adolescent development. Resources include guides, articles, fact sheets, videos, narrated presentations, and websites. These resources were assembled by the Risk and Thriving in Adolescence Program Work Team, a collaboration of Cornell University, Cornell Cooperative Extension, New York State 4-H Youth Development, and external stakeholders, with two goals in mind: to inform and educate youth work professionals, and to provide material that can be used to educate other community groups and sectors.
