Clearly, young people are much more than ways of speaking, ways of behaving or ways of dressing, but usually only that comes to mind when one thinks of them. This common unfamiliarity or stereotype should force educators to seek information that allows understanding who they are, what they think, how they live, what they do, and why they do it. Given the complexity and breadth of the topic, this discussion will only cover some issues on the concept of youth, certain perspectives used to approach young people, some difficulties and challenges that young people today live and possible ways to empower them.
