Kellogg Foundation, a major national foundation that has played an instrumental role in the field of youth development, has stressed the need for an expansion of youth development to also include community within this paradigm.

Youth philanthropy is defined by the Kellogg Foundation (1999: 4), a key force in this approach, as follows: Youth philanthropy gives young people the power to make decisions, experience with a full range of leadership opportunities, achievement of social skills and improved community-youth relationships. In achieving this, youth and adults learn about and from each other, establish genuine relationships, and make an investment in the future of the community.

Youth culture is very much about the visible and what may appear to be obvious to other youth. Youth culture as a construct is overarching and serves as a rubric for capturing many different youth subculture groups (Garratt 1997). Although there is more than one “youth culture” (youth, after all, are far from being a monolithic group) the commonalties of age help to shape perceptions, group identity, and behavior. That said, however, they are not sufficient to represent all groups as one. A youth-cultural perspective broadens the concept of culture and allows us to view youth as consisting of many different subgroups, each with a distinctive personality, set of values, and view toward adults and society.
