dc.description.abstract This thesis is an investigation of Fusion Youth Activity and Technology Centre’s Music Program. It provides a unique opportunity to elucidate the elements that promote positive youth development. As a case study, qualitative analysis using semi-structured interviews, a validation focus group and participant observations were conducted to examine patterns. The data was analysed using a conceptual framework. Stories of the youth were told exploring themes: learning, positive youth development, the five ‘C’s, flow, meaning and identity, opportunity, staff challenges and creativity. The case study found varied evidence of youth development across these themes. This research explored youth’s identity exploration, creativity, flow experiences, learning and opportunities. Emerged patterns raised new questions in regards to previous research on Fusion, youth learning, rural music programs and positive youth development. en_US
