Youth Culture is shaped by two positions:
1. Youth Problem
- A series of arguments through which we see youth culture itself emerge
2. Wayward Youth

Wayward Youth
Three Steps
1. City centres develop in the mid 20th century becoming more populated
2. Visible youth culture emerges as groups of youth began to congregate in city centres
3. Problems associated with city living are overlapped onto the youth now living in these
centres
- Ex. Alienation, poverty, immorality
