Youth Development

BetterWorld partners with organizations that help adolescents successfully navigate their social settings and avoid "risky" lifestyles.

In particular, we support organizations that:

  • Create healthy social settings for youth, including recreation centers and job training programs

  • Promote greater interaction and involvement with parents, and with adult or peer mentors

  • Stress the importance of knowing how, when and where adolescents interact with their families, peers and unrelated adults in home, employment, recreational and educational settings

  • Integrate youth development with community-based development
