Description

This paper applies a structural racism framework to the youth field, paying particular attention to the local, institutional, and cultural contexts in which youth develop. The authors consider the ways in which policies and practices in education, juvenile justice, and the labor market contribute to racially disparate outcomes among youth, and offer recommendations for all organizations who serve youth to begin to address these disparities.
