The list of features of positive developmental settings we have presented was generated primarily from evidence about families, schools, and neighborhoods. Given that the focus of this report is on community programs for youth, we turn now to a review of the ways in which these programs incorporate features of positive developmental settings and provide opportunities for young people to acquire personal and social assets and promote their positive development. What can community programs for youth do to give each person who walks in the door the best chance possible of acquiring the assets described in Part I of this report? How do we make sure that programs engage all youth and support their development? In this part we provide examples of community programs that promote adolescent development. There is great diversity in the structure, focus, and size of these programs. Funding mechanisms, staff training, and management styles also vary. Programs differ in their objectives and the emphasis they place on particular program features.

You're amazed at their energy--or maybe, you're appalled by some of their antics. You wish for the hundredth time - you have kids of your own that you could channel that energy into something productive.
I let her know it's not healthy to expect someone else to change - we can only control ourselves and not others. Also, love how you describe how God has our backs and we can actually act on the notion of things hoped for that are not seen instead of the quaint pseudo idea that all things are known in advance, step by step, and lead to mortal and eternal bliss. How else could you go through 8 years of schooling and 3 years of residency without losing your mind. God loves every last one of us, regardless of religious affiliation. And how little some men understand the value of a well-dusted baseboard. I'm busier than many people my age, but not as much as he is. Also, I'm not involved with a doctor but I am an RN and spend quite a bit of time with them. He was home alone on his one day off while I took off with our kids to visit family states away. I have only been dating my boyfriend for just over 3 months,and he has just started his 3rd year in med school.
