    • Description:
      Research on the impacts of youth work is conducted in multiple disciplines, with little interac-tion between them. These include the fields of business, law, psychology, public health, sociology, and youth development. NIOSH co-funded, with the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation, a project that convened a unique series of symposia between 2007 and 2010 that brought to-gether scholars from multiple disciplines, practitioners and business representatives from the U.S. and Canada to consider the implications of youth employment, and to make recommenda-tions for moving forward, considering the complex relationships of work with other compo-nents of youth development. These Proceedings compile white papers (or subsequently pub-lished articles) that were developed to foster discussions at this series of symposia, along with an ambitious research and policy agenda that was spawned from these interdisciplinary discus-sions. White papers and articles were authored by business scholars, epidemiologists, health communicators, physicians, psychologists, and sociologists. The first symposium [Symposium I: Youth Employment in Developmental Context, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, December 7 - 9, 2007] focused on conceptual and theoretical grounding of youth development and work. The second symposium [Symposium II: The Health Implications of Work among Youth, Chapel Hill, North Carolina, U.S., October 3-5, 2008] focused on public health perspectives about young worker health and safety. The third symposium [Symposium III: Young Worker Health & Safety Interventions and Knowledge Mobilization Strategies, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, June 20-22, 2009] focused on identifying evidence-based interventions to improve the experiences of young workers, discussing issues in evaluating interventions, and disseminating intervention practices more widely. Following the first three symposia, a final symposium [Symposium IV: Developing a Research and Policy Agenda to Improve Young Worker Health and Safety in the U.S. and Canada, Washington, DC, U.S., November 18-20, 2010] was held at which invited participants engaged in facilitated discussions directed at developing a research agenda pertinent to both the U.S. and Canada and outlining policy directions for the U.S. A paper from this final symposium appeared in Public Health Reports and is reprinted in these Proceedings.
