    About

    I'm interested in power acquisition and the development of resistance movements among marginalized/vulnerable adolescent youth and the intersection of adult involvement through youth development programs. I'm curious to learn how marginalized voices struggle for and gain legitimacy, authority, and influence. What factors contribute to the development of resistance frames and efforts? What factors of organized youth development efforts hinder or contribute to the development of skills, knowledge, and dispositions that promote struggle against vulnerability and marginalization?
