This handbook for is designed for staff, teachers, and community leaders. The YELL curriculum is divided into three units: Communication, Leadership, and Research and Action. While the sessions in each unit can be used independently, the three units are designed to build on one another and to inform leadership or action projects that apply the principles and frameworks of youth development. Units 1 and 2 work well as stand alone curriculum. Unit 3 requires the skills built through Units 1 and 2.
