A new book - Men on a Mission: Valuing Youth Work in Our Communities

by Bill Marsiglio, Author

I'm on the MenTeach listserve and thought I would share a recent publication of mine that may be of interest to you and your colleagues. I cited your 2002 book in my own work. As the description indicates at the link below, I interviewed and observed men in a wide range of youth work settings, including elementary, middle, and high school teachers. I also have a separate section on men and schools in the book.

Thus, my approach is electic--looking at men's youth work broadly while exploring men's contributions in particular areas and noting the overlap between different types of youth work experience (volunteer/paid).

William Marsiglio's new qualitative study, presented in his book, Men on a Mission: Valuing Youth Work in Our Communities (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2008), is now available.
