Youth Service Trainings
The Youth Development Framework is essential for any individual or organization that works either directly or indirectly with youth. We offer trainings that will guide you through the framework and its importance, these trainings can range from a 1-day introduction course to a 3-day Youth Development Institute. We also offer trainings that build stronger relationships, and practice emotional and cultural safety for your colleagues and the youth you might work with.
Whether youth are delivering peer to peer facilitation or your staff needs training based on how to keep meetings fun and engaging, the YDN team has workshops that provide tips and tools for leading trainings and courses. Facilitation skills can help youth leaders, managers, and program staff so that they can “move the room” and make sure your message gets across in a fun and impactful way.
