School of Education Visiting Associate Professor Andrew Schneider-Munoz was selected this past Friday as president of the Child and Youth Care Certification Board, which is part of the Association for Child & Youth Care Practice (ACYCP) organization.
He has been a member of the ACYCP for the past 32 years, which represents children's issues for the United States in UNESCO proceedings and sets the standards and practices for youth-serving organizations in North America.
“I look forward to working closely in the future with Pitt and other major institutions of higher learning in the United States and around the world as the association moves forward with the accreditation of academic departments that prepare the workforce for youth-serving organizations,” says Schneider-Munoz.
Through its national board, the association has certified youth work professionals in every state, including many of the School of Education’s own students and alumni.
