Description

Ask-Listen-Encourage Training at the Center Street Library-Community Room


Trainer: Kelly Martin

Core Competencies Addressed: Health, Program Activities

Target Audience: Direct Service, Program Supervision & Management


About this Training: The Ask-Listen-Encourage workshop helps youth-serving professionals learn effective strategies for interacting with youth in a way that makes them feel heard and supported. The content we will cover includes various communication techniques that will help participants feel prepared to build more supportive, youth-centered relationships. Participants will learn how to ask more effective questions, what it means to listen actively to youth, and how to offer youth encouragement rather than praise. Through discussion, critical thinking, content presentation, role play, application activities, and reflection opportunities, participants will:

  • Understand the concept of positive, purposeful interaction with youth

  • Learn the characteristics of effective questions

  • Understand the concept of active listening

  • Learn the characteristics of effective positive responses to youth and their work

The Ask-Listen-Encourage workshop is part of the Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality's 'Youth Work Methods' series, and complements specific components of its Youth Program Quality Assessment framework.
