I want to pass along this call for papers for a special issue of the Journal of Youth Development. I hope you will consider sharing your relevant work here. The emphasis of the journal is bridging research and practice, so all papers need to have a practical emphasis. The due date for 500 word proposals is September 30th.

Call for Papers | Special Issue: Promoting Health and Well-being in Youth

Health-related concerns for youth abound, from obesity, substance abuse, bullying, and violence to physical and mental health conditions, the topic of youth health and well-being is of interest and importance in the youth development field. Increasingly, youth programs are working to address these concerns and to identify ways to promote youth health and well-being across various youth ecologies. In addition, young people are taking active roles in identifying and addressing the health concerns that affect them, helping to define effective strategies and solutions. The Journal of Youth Development is seeking proposals for papers to be included in the Autumn 2018 special issue on Promoting Health and Well-being in Youth. The goal of this special issue is to bring together current program, policy, and research and evaluation efforts, with an emphasis on practical implications and use in programs seeking to promote youth health and well-being.
