  • Notes:
    This paper argues that voluntary social work was an important aspect of middle-class girls? informal education in the early twentieth century. While historians of women?s education have recognised the importance of charitable works for middle-class girls, this paper moves the debate forward with a comprehensive study of the nature, extent and meaning of girls? voluntary work. It is based on archival research using hitherto unexplored records from a number of youth organisations, important at the time but today largely forgotten. The paper was presented at an international conference in Sydney and submitted for the subsequent special edition of the journal on the theme of ?work and the history of education?.
