The purpose of the sympoisum is to bring together a unique constellation of colleagues, that is, scholars involved in both moral education and in theory and research in the field of positive youth development (PYD). To our knowledge, there has not been a scholarly context where these sets of scholars have discussed the issues involved in advancing theory, research, and applications involved in the links between PYD and moral development. The symposium will bring these scholars and AME colleagues together to discuss several key questions. A discussion of scholars with this unique focus on the nature of the links between PYD and moral development could not be timelier or of greater relevance for the AME colleagues.
