Recent developmental psycho-pedagogical theories highlight the relevance and validity of Don Bosco’s Preventive System (PS) as a precursor from the 19th century, emphasizing the promotion of youth potential. These contemporary theories converge on empowering youth by giving them a voice in different forms of expression while underscoring the significance of adult role models. One prominent educational model, the Positive Youth Development (PYD) philosophy, aligns with and complements PS in several aspects. A presentation and comparative analysis of both models enable us to assess them in terms of practical application and future perspectives.
