Traditional services are well-meaning and provide important resources, but they are limited in scope and approach. They tend to focus primarily on basic needs, offering housing, food, or clothing, rather than providing services more holistically by acknowledging other developmental needs, areas of personal growth, or the need for relationships and personal connection. In addition, traditional services tend to be provided from a deficit perspective, focusing on what youth lack or need help with rather than acknowledging and building upon their strengths, capabilities, or resiliencies. Such services also tend to be adult-led, with adults in charge of providing help or services to youth rather than young people sharing power and contributing to decision-making. These limitations are reflected in many service systems for marginalized or low-income youth. These systems tend to approach young people either as victims, who have faced adversity and need help, or as problems that require structure and consequences, rather than recognizing their strengths and resiliencies and promoting their holistic health and well-being.

Dear MEL professionals, would you please help me out with the odd data? For example, in a survey about low-income parents, the column of age has some strange values, such as 120.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
