Sex, Drugs, and Youth Culture

Sex, Drugs, and Youth Culture

CYWK 2009

Students examine youth culture and subcultures with emphasis on Canadian society, as well as issues that affect young people, particularly at-risk children and teens within both urban and rural contexts. How individuals transition from childhood to adolescence and to young adulthood are examined in relation to emerging behaviours. This includes the formation of identity, experimenting/using/abusing substances, sexuality and risky sexual behaviour and exposure to the youth justice system.
