Building and Effective After School Youth Program

by Marion on January 25th, 2013

The David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality has a newsletter and this one, about engaging youth in after school programs, is very informative.

Of interest is the relation between Maslow’s hierarchy of needs relative to the developmental needs of youth and how staff can intentionally incorporate program components to meet these needs.

There also is some good information on staff expertise and training, as well as an easy-to-understand graphic which speaks to the differences between after school programming for youth as compared to children.

Whether you offer an after school or an out of school time program for youth, the information is transferrable to all settings.

Check out the newsletter at this link.
