A Qualitative Study of Urban Hispanic Youth in an After-School Program: Career, Cultural, and Educational Development
Perry, Justin C.; Calhoun-Butts, Candice
Counseling Psychologist, v40 n4 p477-519 May 2012
Based on a diverse sample of 11 urban Hispanic youth, the career, educational, and cultural domains of developmental adjustment were investigated through a triangulation of interview data and field notes within the context of delivering an after-school program. Consensual qualitative research (CQR) and content analysis were used to explore how youth constructed meaning within these domains and experienced their participation in the program. The CQR results yielded five domains of categories and subcategories, while four themes emerged from the analysis of field notes. By synthesizing this corpus of data, directions for future research and implications for practice are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
