The current literature pertaining to youth empowerment documents several outcomes associated with these processes. Despite this knowledge base, little is understood about the processes through which these outcomes are achieved. Increased understanding of these processes is necessary to help further facilitate the successful implementation of these processes across school and community contexts.
The purpose of this study was to examine the factors which contribute to the successful enactment of empowerment processes. This study utilized a qualitative case study design to examine the empowerment processes in place within a community outside a large metropolitan area in the Midwest. Results identified various factors which contribute to the successful implementation of these processes. Additionally, several barriers which prevent these processes from being implemented across various contexts within the community. Implications, as well as recommendations for overcoming these barriers, are discussed.
