Hemphill, Michael A.
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v27 n4 p39-41 2014
As physical educators continue to advocate for school-based PE, they should also consider ways to extend their work into community settings in an effort to ensure that all kids have an opportunity to develop physical literacy. This article describes how positive youth development programs can provide an opportunity for physical educators to engage with youth outside of the school day.
