American Youth Work Center


The American Youth Work Center was formed in 1984 by Bill Treanor, a leader in the runaway and homeless youth shelter movement, to advocate for positive youth policy and provide support for youth-serving organizations. In 1986, AYWC launched an international training program for human services workers that has placed over 2,500 foreign nationals in U.S. social services agencies. In 1992, AYWC published the first issue of Youth Today, a trade newspaper for youth workers that is now the most prominent undertaking of AYWC. Youth Today covers issues such as juvenile justice, child welfare, afterschool programs and adolescent health. The newspaper is published ten times per year and has a circulation of approximately 10,000.
