This volume of New Directions for Youth Development addresses the kinds of learning tools and experiences that are most likely to foster a positive and engaged sense of purpose for diverse groups of youth. The groundbreaking research presented here is among the first in recent years to explicitly address the supports of youth purpose and construct youth purpose interventions. The article authors present the current state of the field on instructing for youth purpose. The research serves as a resource for researchers, teachers, and policymakers who are interested in promoting positive youth development and thriving.
