Title: Towards a Youth Development Paradigm in Sri Lanka: Lessons from the Youth in Transition Program
Authors: Khoo, Yishin
Issue Date: 12-Oct-2008
Abstract: This thesis is about a group of young people in southern Sri Lanka, a relatively successful youth program – the Youth in Transition Program (YITP) in this part of the island, and the concept of “youth development”. It is about a university student’s attempt to use YITP as a case study to illustrate just how interactions between a program and its participants could create a set of “youth development” meanings important to a country like Sri Lanka and the well-being of Sri Lankan youth. It seeks to capture young people’s own conception of “youth development” in Sri Lanka as it happens locally during and after their participation at YITP. Such conception hints towards the need for an integrated youth development paradigm in the country, both now and in the future.
