This yearbook brings together current conceptual and empirical research on learning in and across a wide range of contexts that are purpose-built with young people in mind. Whether they are designed for or with children and youth, these learning contexts are intended to engage young people, to provide access to and enable participation in an expanded range of learning opportunities that supplement and/or supplant the learning opportunities available through public schooling. As a result, they are designed with children and youth at the center: to build on and expand their interests and to respond to their concerns. The learning contexts included here are diverse—afterschool programs, informal contexts for learning, and flexible and alternative school programs—and largely, though not always, voluntary. Together with learning opportunities in homes, schools, neighborhoods, and communities, these contexts contribute to the learning histories of children and youth and, in so doing, they are very much about the creation of possible futures.
