In The Quest for Mastery, Sam M. Intrator and Don Siegel investigate an emerging trend: the growth of out-of-school programs dedicated to helping underserved youth develop the personal qualities and capacities that will help them succeed in school, college, and beyond. Intensive programs from rowing to youth radio, from lacrosse to studio art, aim to create “communities of practice” that capture young people’s interest and support them as they strive to excel. Through richly detailed accounts, the authors describe the unconventional ways these programs have evolved and articulate the formidable challenges they face in operationalizing their aspirations. By documenting the powerful effect out-of-school programs like these can have in transforming lives, the authors show how young people can become engaged in meaningful and productive learning experiences and highlight the poignant contrast between what these students experience inside and outside of school.

As a child and a sibling of educators and a person who cares deeply about providing a way out of an intergenerational failure to thrive that is far too common, I have always believed that formal education was effectively the only true route to success. A route that I will say is not successful for far too many people. Sam Intrator and Don Siegel have illustrated another fascinating way to help people succeed. At its most basic, hook them with something that they find interesting and fun, teach them about the path required to excel at it, and then translate that along with all the confidence built on achievement into a life changing lesson applicable to all future endeavors. I highly recommend this book to anyone who cares about helping kids find success!!

Out of school youth development has become very popular in the last 20 years but more so in the last decade. During the last decade Intrator and Siegel have immersed themselves in a highly regarded program, Project Coach. The Quest for Mastery is a product of their research and experience over this 10-year period. Interspersed with wonderful examples, this book is well researched and organized. This book is not some simple checklist for what makes a program successful but a book that provides clear rationale for what such programs can accomplish and why. This book should be required reading for educators involved in out of school youth development.

I have long been interested and involved in K-12 education, but didn't know about this dynamic world of out of school programs. In The Quest for Mastery, Intrator and Siegel highlight a wide range of exemplary and inspirational after-school programs. Through site visits and interviews with the founders, staff and students, they give a human face to these programs and invite the reader to see the full story – the challenges, struggles and successes – of the programs and the people involved in them. Through close examination, they illustrate how these programs not only lead to mastery of a particular sport or activity, but more importantly how the skills learned through this mastery transfer to success in school, work and life. This is an important, and very readable, book for all engaged in schools and striving to find innovative ways to spur youth development.

This engaging book combines extensive research with first-hand reporting to show how positive youth development programs teach the secrets to success to poor or vulnerable kids -- and how those lessons can literally change their lives. As the director of a small sports-based youth development program, I read The Quest for Mastery for insights into best practices -- and found them. As a parent, I use the strategies Intrator and Siegel detail to teach and coach my own children. The Quest for Mastery is also a field guide: The index is both broad and deep and has led to other great discoveries and ideas. Teachers, coaches, parents will all find great strategies and advice in this big-hearted book.

As a clinical psychologist who works with adolescents, I was inspired and guided by this book which offers a new, individualized direction to helping youngsters change the direction of their lives. This book crosses disciplines, is imaginative about social issues that defy more traditional approaches, and is highly readable. I recommend it to educators, psychologists, and everyone who is concerned about our youth.
