A special issue of New Directions for Youth Development, ed. by RTI International's Jean Wiecha and NIOST's Georgia Hall.

niostHPboxThis special issue of New Directions for Youth Development, sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the National AfterSchool Association and edited by Jean Wiecha (RTI International) and Georgia Hall (NIOST), presents ideas and information that support the needs of professionals and programs in the OST field working to provide healthy environments and experiences for children and youth.

Here are a range of research studies that can inform and shape current discussion of best policies and practices to support child and youth wellness. The body of work presented in this issue adds considerably to our knowledge of healthy eating and physical activity interventions in the OST programs, and highlights the substantial contribution towards childhood obesity prevention that we envision from our field.
