Putting Youth Work on the Map
Yohalem, Nicole; Pittman, Karen
Forum for Youth Investment
Over the past year, two comprehensive studies of youth workers were coordinated by the Next Generation Youth Work Coalition. Together, these two studies, conducted by the Forum for Youth Investment and the National Afterschool Association, capture the voices and perspectives of over 5,000 youth workers from across the country. Together they offer the clearest, most comprehensive picture yet of the youth work profession: who youth workers are, where they work, how they are supported on the job and what their aspirations are, for themselves and the field. This research brief discusses key findings and implications from these studies and includes recommendations generated by key Coalition stakeholders in response to the data. (Contains 4 footnotes.)
