About this event

Positive Youth Development, “PYD” is an approach that incorporates the development of skills, opportunities and authentic relationships into programs, practices and policies, so that young people reach their full potential. This training is open to youth serving professionals or anyone interested in youth wellbeing.

This FREE training will link content with expertise! Lunch will be provided.

Here is what John Clark- Mayor of Ridgway, had to say about the training: "The PYD training has been mind blowing. If I only had known some of this stuff when I had teenagers... The science behind it is incredible and it's nice to have some real solid facts to fall back on when you're trying to figure out how to work with youth who are struggling. Or, if they're not struggling, maybe they just don't feel comfortable communicating with adults. If you have a better understanding of what their challenges are and what their brain is going through, it just changes everything about how you talk to teenagers. I found it to be transformative."
