Youth are one of the primary audiences of many public legal education resources and services. Some address the needs of youth who have immediate legal needs; some prepare them for asserting their legal rights and assuming their legal obligations as adults, some assist them in understanding the legal problems that their families might be dealing with, and others prepare them to engage as active citizens.
Some needs assessments also address preferred or effective ways of meeting the needs of youth.
