Abstract: 

This journal article presents findings from a mixed-methods case study that sought to identify how a runaway and homeless youth (RHY) organization engages in positive youth development. The researchers found consistent responses from the qualitative and quantitative data that reflect the organization’s youth-centered approach. The key policies and practices that the organization emphasizes are building and maintaining empathetic relationships with youth, promoting youths’ autonomy, and regularly evaluating whether the organization is meeting its mission to provide services that demonstrate best practices.
