Undergrads learn youth studies practice in the field

Social work professor Michael Baizerman, students in the youth studies program, and youth workers in the St. Paul Recreation Centers have been working collaboratively to support youth on the East Side. Baizerman partners with youth workers--including many who came up in the communities--on professional development who then mentor University students on youth practice.

Find out more about such rich field experiences for undergraduate students in the Winter 2011 issue of Connect.

Eli (second from right) and colleagues at Arlington Rec. Center, including DeAnthony, Raeshon, and Isaac, learn from one another's youth work practices.
