Abstract

LYRA, Jorge et al. "We can't do nothing but decide ice cream flavors". Adolescents: from subject of necessities to subject of rights. Cad. CEDES [online]. 2002, vol.22, n.57, pp. 9-21. ISSN 0101-3262.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-32622002000200002.

Our society shows an increasing concern for adolescence, which is represented not only as a "phase of life", but also as a period that is always problematic. Adolescents, as for them, are considered as subjects of such necessities as specific health aids. In practice, however, very little has been done for adolescents as subjects of rights, in spite of the debate about the Statute of Children and Adolescents. Based on a criticism to this position, this paper aims at presenting an experience of research intervention in non-formal education with a group of low-class adolescents, in which we intend to discuss the current notion of adolescence, allowing a kind of identification and (re)construction of other meanings.

Keywords : Adolescence; Youth; Research; Intervention; Non-formal education.
