This paper offers a South African perspective on the history and future of youth studies. This input will extend the conversation from very deep appreciation of our late colleagues and their direct and generous contribution to scholarly work of youth research across the globe.  It will also highlight the non- coverage of the global south by the key theoretical ideas that have traditionally been debated in our RC, and offer a gentle nudge to continue to work towards representing other global realities in our theories the future.
