Youth-At-Risk Center Announces Submissions to New Journal

The National Youth-At-Risk Center (NYAR), located within Georgia Southern University’s College of Education, recently announced a call for submissions for the newly launched National Youth-At-Risk  Journal (NYAR Journal). The journal is an open-access, peer-reviewed online journal that publishes educational articles on how to reduce harmful risk conditions and promote the well-being of all youth, especially vulnerable youth in schools, families and communities. The journal is edited by Drs. Cordelia Zinskie, Dan Rea, James Jupp and Eric Landers. Rea and Landers are co-directors of the center.

The National Youth-At-Risk Center also sponsors a conference, now in its 26th year, which is scheduled for March 1-4, 2015, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Savannah, Georgia. This conference showcases nationally recognized keynote and featured speakers who provide professional development for adults serving youth, especially in high-poverty schools (Title I) and communities. Over 120 training sessions provide research-based programs and best practices for creating safe, healthy, caring, and intellectually empowering educational environments that foster the well-being of all children and adolescents.

The journal, published twice a year, is now accepting submissions. Although submissions are accepted on a continuous basis, those received by March 1 will receive priority consideration for publication in the Spring, 2015 issue. Click here for more information on the journal.
