Social inclusion among youths growing up with a disability /

by Yu, Peng.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. NATSEM, University of Canberra 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: NATSEM Seminar seriesSummary: This paper examined social inclusion issues among young people with physical or developmental/learning disability using data collected from a cohort of 18-year-old youth - the Youth in Focus (YIF) data. By exploring differences in past experiences, present circumstances and future outlook by the disability status of youth, the research showed that youth with a disability, especially those with a developmental/learning disability had significantly worse outcomes than those with no disability in many aspects. Although there were no significant correlations between disability and disadvantages in most other aspects, some disadvantages such as intensive income support receipt of family were found to be associated with significantly worse outcomes and outlook for youths with disability.Availability: (1)

The impact of racism upon the health and wellbeing of young Australians /

by Mansouri, Fethi

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Foundation for Young Australians with Education Foundation 2009; Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation 2009Description: 135 p.: ill. col.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This report explores the attitudes of Australian youth in relation to key issues in contemporary race relations, such as cultural diversity, tolerance and privilege. Understanding the direct experiences of young people facing racism who are from Indigenous, migrant or refugee backgrounds is critically important as we re-imagine the roles and values placed upon all young people, in all communities across Australia. One of the clearest messages to come from this report is a reminder of the critical role that our schools play and the core responsibility that is bestowed upon school communities to instil values and behaviours that contribute more directly to building a diverse and dynamic nation. ; The key objectives of the project were: ; -to examine the experiences of racism for young people in Australia of mainstream (English-speaking background), Indigenous, migrant and refugee backgrounds; ; -to investigate how young people in Australia report and respond to racism; and ; -to explore the attitudes of mainstream youth in relation to key issues in contemporary race relations, such as cultural diversity, tolerance and privilege.Availability: (1)

Home-growing Islam : the role of Australian Muslim youth in intra- and inter-cultural change /

by Stephenson, Peta | The National Centre of Excellence for Islamic Studies.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. The National Centre of Excellence for Islamic Studies 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: NCEIS Research Paper Vol.3, No. 6Summary: This article explores the extraordinary creativity and resourcefulness that Australian Muslims, especially younger, second-generation ones, show in reinterpreting and mediating their cultural and spiritual inheritance. It also seeks to address some significant gaps in the recent literature on Islam and Muslims in Australia. Research on Muslim youth attitudes in this country is limited. There is a relative absence of serious regional studies that start from the 'Australianness' of Muslims in Australia. As such, the experiences of Muslims born and brought up in Australia as they seek to negotiate questions of faith and identity both intra- and inter-culturally in a post 9/11 environment have largely been neglected.Availability: (1)

Publisher: Auckland, N.Z. Office of the Prime Minister's Science Advisory Committee 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2011 Includes references Includes appendices SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: The passage from childhood to adulthood is complex. In New Zealand a large number of children do not make this transition easily, which leads to an unacceptably high level of poor social and health outcomes for our young people. The Prime Minister asked his Chief Science Advisor to explore the factors underlying adolescent behaviour and to indicate where there may be evidence-based opportunities for changes to policy and practices that might help to mitigate these negative outcomes.Availability: (1)

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research [2011]Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: with references and appendicesSummary: In recent times social capital has received considerable attention because it is seen as having the potential to address many of the problems facing modern society, including the poor educational outcomes of considerable numbers of young people. ; This paper uses data from the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY) to explore the relationship between social capital at age 15 and participation in education and training at age 17. The issue is whether social capital is yet another factor which advantages the already advantaged, or whether social capital operates separately from family background...Key messagesAvailability: (1)

Social and emotional development in early adolescence : tapping into the power of relationships and mentoring

by Hagan, Della | Mentor | Sánchez, Bernadette | Cascarlno, Jason | White, Kate.

Publisher: Boston, MA : [Mentor ], 2019Description: 65 p. : ill. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: "With Generous Support from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation"Summary: This guide focuses specifically on relationship-based strategies for young adolescents in the middle grades. Young adolescence is a time of tremendous social and emotional growth,³ yet research and interventions specific to this unique developmental stage are sparse compared to those focusing on the elementary grades.⁴ In the words of Principal Michael Redmon of Thurston Middle School in Westwood, Massachusetts, “A lot of [social and emotional learning] work doesn’t focus on this age group, and this can be the most challenging three years of a child’s life.” Identifying specific relationship-based strategies that promote social and emotional learning for students in the middle grades will ensure that students receive the necessary supports to maximize their social and emotional learning potential and lay the foundation for healthy development and relationships as they grow, increasing their chances of future academic, career, and life success.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Australia's youth : in brief / Australian Institute of Health and Welfare

by Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.

Publisher: Canberra ACT : Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, 2021Description: v, 117 p. : ill. PDF.Other title: Australian's young people in brief.Online Access: Report | Website Summary: Adolescence and young adulthood is a critical period in a person’s life. Young people can experience rapid physical, social and emotional changes. For many, these changes occur while they are also making the transition from dependence to independence. This is a time for finishing school, pursuing further training and education, entering the workforce, moving out of the family home, and forming relationships. However, the pathways from education to work, and from the parental home to independent living, have become more varied and complex, and often extend over longer periods than in the past. Since early 2020, COVID-19 has emerged as a major health threat and disrupted almost all parts of society worldwide, including Australia. Data until June 2021 has shown that although case numbers are high among young Australians, deaths have been low compared to older age groups. However, it has had a substantial social and economic impact on young Australians, particularly in relation to psychological distress, educational disruption, unemployment, housing stress and safety. While data suggest some outcomes for young people have returned to pre-COVID-19 levels, ongoing monitoring is needed to fully understand the longer-term impact if the pandemic. Australia’s youth: in brief presents key findings from the main web report, Australia’s youth. Both reports examine the most recent data available across 7 broad areas, or domains. These domains are based on the AIHW’s people-centred data model— health, social support, education, employment, income and finance, housing and justice and safety. Some information on the impact of COVID-19 on young people is included throughout Australia’s youth: in brief in the relevant domain. More detailed information is available in ‘COVID-19 and the impact on young people’ in Australia’s youth. Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
