LSAP 3011 - YOUTH DEVELOPMENT IN OUT-OF-SCHOOL SETTINGS

Credits: 3.0

Organized activities for children and youth that occur outside of school are a big deal. A bigger deal than they used to be. Participation rates are soaring, innovative programs are thriving, and research shows that, in many cases, attendance can benefit young people. In this course, we'll apply a developmental lens to the vibrant and growing out-of-school learning field. We'll explore the current realities and future promise of organized activities as important settings for child and youth development.
