The Teen Years Explained Guidebook and Training

Our comprehensive guidebook, The Teen Years Explained: Taking Everyday Action to Support Healthy Adolescent Development, is an outstanding resource for anyone who serves, cares for, or cares about adolescents.  

The Center has also created a customizable training program to accompany the guide and help people who work with young people, service providers, and teachers better understand adolescent development and the role adults can play in supporting teens.
