One of the things that resonates with me is the All Stars’ view that schools won’t or can’t entirely change the calculus for young people without community and individual development. As educators, we need to create places where we can give outside of school more credibility, so that more professionals can see themselves in roles that would advance the field of Afterschool Development. I would also love for every university to be teaching this [All Stars Project’s] development approach, which would be of great value to people looking for ways to belong and connect.David J.

Development matters: positively impacting how youth learn and grow
We were honored to be joined by Dr. Chard at the Afterschool Development Conference held at the Scott Flamm Center in Newark in June. The conference brought together dozens of young people, business leaders, academics, Afterschool Development Working Group (ADWG) members and other community and non-profit leaders in New Jersey. In his keynote, Dr. Chard made a strong and passionate case for the value of afterschool development and the importance of being part of a “risk-taking movement.”
