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.
