After every presentation, young youth workers would approach me and say things like, “I had no idea that I belonged to something that has such a long and important history”.
I believe strongly that in order for Afterschool to be considered a field, it is necessary to have a documented history. By “field”, think of medicine, nursing, social work, or education - each has a documented history. Although afterschool youth programs date back to the late 1800s, our history has not been documented fully.
