About SOWA Workshops

Our workshops offer an interactive space for professionals to develop their individual skills and for program managers seeking supports around training their staff. Open to all, our workshops are designed to support those working with young people, build program management skills, and develop social emotional skills.

We offer workshops in Structural Racism and Cultural Responsiveness, Social-Emotional Learning, Youth Works Methods, and more. We also can develop Customized Trainings to fit your specific needs.

Check out our Quick Connections videos for tips and insight from youth development programs. These short, recorded sessions highlight specific resources, strategies, and real-time stories from programs supporting youth, families, and communities.

Thanks to our partnership with the Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF), providers working in licensed school-age programs can receive STARS Credits from our workshops. Most SOWA workshops are STARS approved.

Classes fill quickly and registrations are processed in the order received. An email confirmation is sent when the online order is processed.

SOWA reserves the right to cancel any training event two business days prior to the event. In case of cancellation, registrants will be notified and registration fees refunded. If you cannot attend a training event, we will refund your registration fees only if we are contacted at least two business days prior to the event. Otherwise, no refunds will be given.
