Developing Competent Youth and Strong Communities Through After-School ProgrammingDanish, S. J.; Gullotta, T. P. (Editors). Child Welfare League of America Press, Washington, DC. 2000. 314 pp. $24.95. Paperback.
A variety of perspectives on the promotion of youth competency through after-school activities are presented in this essay collection. The authors endeavor to strengthen the programs and knowledge in the field and in communities by exploring ways in which young people's lives can be enriched and their personal competencies developed. Chapters address healthy contexts for youth programs, stressing that the process of youth activities is much more important than the activity itself. New ideas for sports, the arts, and programs targeted to adolescent girls are discussed.
