Youth Development Guide 2.0: Engaging young people in after-school programming
This Guide is designed to offer an introduction to youth development principles and practices to the diverse group of people involved in creating and implementing afterschool programs—program directors, school administrators, teachers, staff, volunteers, community partners, and others. We believe that adopting a youth development approach when designing and implementing afterschool programs can help ensure that young people get the most out of these programs.

Mindfulness in Afterschool
Mindfulness training for young people has been successfully used by schools across the country to help young people during the school day. These mindfulness sessions (20-25 minutes) have helped young people better pay attention in the classroom, control their impulses and anger, reduce their stress levels, and create a healthier school community. Our belief is that extending mindfulness to the afterschool setting will have similar results. This 16-session curriculum is designed to accompany the Mindfulness in Afterschool training offered by Temescal Associates. The number of sessions conducted each week (1 or 2 per week) is the decision of the program leader.
