Patricia A. Dawson

Abstract


Understanding the values of today’s teens and tweens and how they make decisions is crucial for all youth professionals. An excellent resource to assist youth professionals has been developed by the Girl Scout Research Institute and Harris Interactive. Good Intentions: The Beliefs and Values of Teens and Tweens highlights a national research study which explored the values of today’s youth as well as how they make decisions. The 52 page document shares significant findings from the research utilizing youth quotes, tables and diagrams. The work builds on a similar study commissioned by Girl Scouts USA in 1989 and shares an encouraging picture of today’s youth. Readers will find the results from this research to be of great value when developing youth programs.
