Snellinger points out the different responsibilities of the young activists in the sense that they were given assisted by the authorities and civilians or the public members. The constituency assembly authority of the Maoist-majority helped them learn how to handle duties by providing the young adults and youth activists with an opportunity to develop a rough copy of the national youth policy. This journal tries to elaborate on the youth agenda’s difference, which will later be an added advantage to them. It also stresses how young youths are creating authority instead of being irresponsible. The research shows an appropriate example of a change that impacts young youths’ lives in the right way.

The authors of this article Eriksson and Geidne show the importance of how relaxation time is too young for youths’ lives. They mostly share their leisure time with their respective peer groups; it could be crucial for helping youths in the puberty stage develop their full potential and attain the best possible health as they transition from one stage of life to the other one. The journal tries to relate some of the contemporary aspects of this study with how they share their time at youth care centers, a place they participate in active duties towards promoting healthy life. Moreover, the article aimed to explain several ways at two private young youth centers based in Sweden, social life, and the aspects vital in creating care groups or youth centers mainly for taking care of teen’s lives.

The journal’s writer discusses the group or percentage of teenagers who stand for other people. They are provided with good caring and youthful systems altogether. A good number of youths go through many challenges, and some end in mental fitness amenities because of mental disorders.

The journal’s writers Tung, Waterman, and Blake, discusses that when teenagers (mostly the younger ones) are forced to youth care centers, there is a high likelihood of them becoming drug abusers or using other unlawful materials. The key reason for this is stress, which is among the current problems in society. This article discusses the effects of various stressors because of the long-lasting misuse of drugs, which afterwards impair and associate nervous modifications that generate serious issues to the youths. Still, the current study assessed a possible relationship among young adults, mainly teenagers, and repetitive substance misuse in foster care and youth centers.

He further explains despite various early parenthood circumstances among young youth’s care centers and increasing child abuse; there are inadequate young youth welfare services in Illinois. The level of ignorance in that welfare facilities has caused quite a good number of youths to suffer. This article’s research uses managerial information from DCFS in Illinois to assess the cases of ignored assessments and youth ill-treatment indicated in the case reports of teenager care centers.

The writers express a challenge that the teenagers who are moving from adoptive care meet—the teenagers at youth center systems. The authors explain how the youths at the youth centers are likely to have premature pregnancies despite their religion, abuse situations, school connectedness, or educational attainments, mostly the youths aged seventeen to nineteen years. This situation results from a lack of sexual education at the youth centers and unreliable ways of family planning.





a. The primary aspect of research is the revolution in the youth centers that are connected to the youths in care.

b. Evaluating the revolution in youth centers is critical because it assesses what the youths are gaining from youth centers physically, ethically, socially, spiritually, and psychologically. Nevertheless, the youth’s handling at youth centers is a communal feature that demands considerable inspection.

Literature Review

a. In the modern days, changes have been ongoing in how the authorities at young youth care centers carry out their daily events. However, the new changes can have either harmful effects to the young adults in different youth centers or, become more beneficial to them than the way they taught.

b. Most fields have been covered in numerous research topics that have done over the years. For example, in young adults, child abuse has a close relation to the rate at which child crime is increasing daily.

c. Moreover, the background information does examine the length at which youth’s care and centers could be enhanced to assist in saving youths’ lives. Thus, it is a need to investigate other factors which may have led to high misconduct rates amid youths.

d. Though, I will concentrate on a research topic which encompasses young youth care facilities which need to mark the youths.



a. The study questions are linked to the problems discussed in the discussion. The ways to generate a youth center aim to help youths overcome their life’s challenges.

b. The society-based contribution has shown satisfactory significance in weakening the unfortunate viewpoints, which undesirably influence youth centers’ youths.

c. The concept will depict that society-based contributions like youth centers are better than the internment of negligible lawbreakers in some cases and other cases, it the opposite.
