Body and Soul: Reflections on Two Professional Development Credential Pilots in Massachusetts

March 1st, 2010 | RESEARCH

The example of two pilot credentials in Massachusetts, The School-Age Youth Development Credential (SAYD) and the Professional Youth Worker Credential (PYWC), can help us to understand the importance of establishing credentials and what we can expect to accomplish in doing so. This knowledge can guide the next steps in establishing a national credential for afterschool and youth workers.
