Structure & Clear Limits (Jun 12)

STARS Credits: 2

Many young people face a lot of uncertainty and inconsistency in their lives, which can limit their capacity or even willingness to take on new challenges and problem solve. The strategies that make up this Method are designed to support you in creating a consistent, predictable environment where youth feel like they can trust the space, trust you, and relax enough to be open to engaging with all your program has to offer. Feelings of emotional and physical safety are the foundation to working up the Pyramid of Program Quality and being able to achieve higher levels of youth engagement.

How do program staff prevent chaos in a youth environment without stifling youth’s positive energy? Youth need structure and clear limits that allow them to feel safe while simultaneously encouraging them to try new skills and take on challenges. This interactive workshop helps participants analyze the level of structure in their programs and practice identifying, transparently naming, and maintaining clear limits.

Participants will:

  • Understand how Structure and Clear Limits meet the developmental needs of youth.
  • Have the opportunity to explore ways to improve their programs’ structure.
  • Have the opportunity to establish limits for their programs
