The Social Pedagogy Association is a community developed to advocate for and promote the understanding of social pedagogy in North America and throughout the world.

SPA Timeline

The Social Pedagogy Association strives to be an inclusive organization that believes in the importance of the free flow of ideas and scholars for the advancement of research, theory and educational practices. The Social Pedagogy Association encourages scholarly interaction, collaboration, and debate among academics and practitioners from diverse intellectual perspectives and countries of origin.

Social Pedagogy is a powerful force for change. With over 150 years of history, social pedagogy is both an interdisciplinary academic field of inquiry and a field of practice that is situated in the intersection of three areas of human activity: education, social work and community development. Just as one pebble can change the tide, so can one person affect the world. If you are interested in using practices and theories of social pedagogy, join us as we work together for a better world.
