Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate how Productive Youth Development (PYD) tools affect risky behavior among university students in the public sector. Positive youth growth focuses on building on young people's skills and assets to help them grow and be healthy in all areas. Even though its benefits are known, not much research has been done on how much PYD affects risky behavior among college students, especially in public schools. To get a full picture of PYD instruments and how they relate to risky behaviors, the study uses a mixed-methods technique that includes quantitative questionnaires and qualitative interviews. Validated scales will collect quantitative data on PYD categories like resilience, confidence, and pro-social behaviors. Risk behaviors like drug abuse, juvenile offenders, and dangerous sexual behavior will also be evaluated. Interviews with students will give us a better understanding of their experiences and thoughts on PYD treatments and how they affect risky behaviors. The study's results will help us understand theories better and develop real-world ways to help young people grow up healthy and stop college students from doing dangerous things. Understanding the connection between PYD tools and risky behaviors at public universities is the main goal of this study. The results will help create specific plans and programs to help young people's overall growth and health in college.
