  • Fighting Youth Discrimination: Q&A with NYRA President Jeffrey Nadel

    Are young people being discriminated against? Founded in 1968, the National Youth Rights Association (NYRA, youthrights.org) says yes and works to educate the public on how laws intended to protect young people instead treat them as second-class citizens. Reason.tv sat down with NYRA's president Jeffrey Nadel to discuss how drinking, curfew, and other laws punish young adults. Nadel points to New Jersey's Kyliegh's law as an example of how the unintended consequences of many laws aimed at protecting youth actually endanger them. The law requires drivers under the age of 21 to have a red decal on the license plates of the vehicles they drive, ostensibly to allow law enforcement to be more protective of them. But the decals have instead lead violent drivers to target those cars; infra...

But the decals have instead lead violent drivers to target those cars; infractions by younger drivers also come with harsher penalties for typical traffic violations. Instead of one-size-fits-all policies that punish responsible youth, Nadel says that decisions about alcohol consumption, work hours, and even voting should be more tailored to individuals, regardless of age. For more on Kyleigh's Law, read Reason magazine's June 2011 story "Dead Kids Make Bad Laws."

This created an opportunity to formalize the YOW Community of Practice as well as increase the support provided to frontline workers through an online learning portal. It was our pleasure to engage Platinum Leadership to facilitate these expanded services. The community of practice gathers professionals dedicated to making it more likely that marginalized and at-risk youth are engaged, and have families and/or caring adults equipped to help them thrive. It is committed to helping young people navigate the resources in their communities, and make choices that support their healthy and safe development. As a Community of Practice, we’ve set three objectives for ourselves in creating a shared space in the areas of learning, connection and advocacy. Let’s look at each of these in turn … 1) To support learning, the Community of Practice will share best practices, trends, and information. They will learn from one another, and foster opportunities to explore professional development for Youth Outreach Workers. 2) To promote connection, the Community of Practice will provide opportunities for support, affirmation, communication and collaboration among its members. 3) To encourage advocacy, the Community of Practice will highlight trends and evaluate results with policy makers, making recommendations for program direction. It will speak with one, strengthened voice on behalf of the Youth Outreach Worker Program and the wider system as it affects young people and their families. Being seen as a valid and credible source of youth information across the province because of the data that they are able to collect and the work they do with marginalized young people. To see government making decisions based on the thousands of young people that we see through the youth outreach program. It is inspiring to witness Youth Outreach Workers acting as mentors, promoting broader opportunities for youth in communities all across Ontario. Every day, their advocacy improves young people’s access to the services they need. Thank you to the Ministry of Children and Youth Services for supporting this work, to each of the agencies and leaders participating in this Community of Practice, to the extraordinary Youth Outreach Workers who make all of this possible, and to the young people and families whom it is our privilege to serve.   Participating Agencies 360 Kids African Canadian Legal Clinic Boys and Girls Club of Durham Boys and Girls Club Ottawa Carea (formerly Durham Community Health Centre) Caribbean African Canadian Social Services Dilico Anishinabek Family Care East Metro Youth Services Fernie Youth Services London InterCommunity Health Centre Malton Neighbourhood Services New Beginnings Pathways for Children and Youth Peterborough Youth Services Sudbury Action Centre for Youth Thunder Bay Counselling Centre Wesley Urban Ministries YES Shelter YMCA of Greater Toronto Yorktown Family Services Youth Diversion Program Please visit ‪http://emys.on.ca and http://www.platinumleadership.com‬‬ to learn more.
