JYD's Fall issue is hot off the virtual presses. We feature a Thought Leader Commentary on the new report, From a Nation at Risk to a Nation at Hope. We explore how summer camps fit into the learning landscape and how to reach and engage Latinx youth. We examine the impact of circus arts, college and career readiness, and livestock sales programs and more. We share learnings from efforts to prevent runaway youth and youth suicide. Finally, we review three social and emotional learning resources: a toolkit, curriculum and book.
JYD continues to grow and improve. We are delighted to welcome additional section editors: Andrea Vest Ettekal of Texas A&M University, and Jill Young of the American Institutes for Research (AIR). The editorial team has refined our three peer-reviewed sections. We seek Feature Articles that address important topics, issues and trends, Research & Evaluation Studies that share new findings from approaches to applied research and evaluation, and Program & Practice Articles that present and discuss programs, practices, training and policies designed to inform and improve practice. Read our new section policies and find sample articles here.
As always, we are grateful for our authors for choosing JYD to share their scholarship, our reviewers for helping make JYD stronger, and our readers for trusting JYD as your go-to place for bridging youth development research and practice. We also thank our co-sponsoring associations, NAE4-HA and NAA.
