In all employment fields, some workers change career paths while others stay in the field for long periods of time. In this spring 2019 Lunchtime Seminar, researchers from the National Institute on Out-of-School Time, Georgia Hall, Ph.D., Elizabeth Starr, M.Ed., Kathryn A. Wheeler, Ed.D., Lisette DeSouza, Ph.D., and Kathy Schleyer, M.S., examine workforce trends in the afterschool and out-of-school time field. They share findings from a workforce survey focused on out-of-school time professionals and their views on the benefits, challenges, and opportunities for growth within the field. The researchers also discuss broader employment trends and how workforce training and professional development can promote quality out-of-school time programming.
