More Time for Teens: Understanding Teen Participation – Frequency, Intensity, Duration – in Boys and Girls Clubs

by Marion on September 13th, 2010

Here is a research paper “More Time for Teens: Understanding Teen Participation – Frequency, Intensity, Duration – in Boys and Girls Clubs.” While this paper speaks to the Club experience, the learnings are representative of youth centres in general – places which are dedicated to youth and/or children and youth.

Of specific note are the Lessons Learned in the Executive Summary and the chapter on the Factors That Contribute to Teen Participation. The youth at these clubs represent diverse cultures and are generally from the lower economic strata however the information is quite transferrable to main stream youth. Good information for program development and recommendations for program expansion (reference the information on frequency and duration). An easy read if you skip through the theoretical and research information.
