Workshops

Our workshops are a great option for professionals wanting to develop their own skills or for program managers wanting to train their staff without additional commitments. Open to all, these workshops are designed to teach how to work with children and youth, build program management skills, and develop social emotional skills.

We offer trainings in Structural Racism and Cultural Responsiveness, Social-Emotional Learning, Youth Works Methods, and much more. And we can develop a Customized Training to fit your specific needs.

Be sure to check out our Quick Connections videos for a burst of tips and new ideas anytime. These short, live, and recorded webinars highlight specific resources, youth development strategies, and real-time stories from programs supporting youth, families, and communities in the time of COVID-19.

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.
