Description

*Attendance required for both sessions on June 3, 2019 and June 10, 2019
5pm-8pm* Dinner & Childcare Provided.

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!

The practical PYD lens depicts youth and young adults as resources (and not problems!). This approach depends on the use of five guiding principles:

1. Strengths-based. Taking a holistic approach that focuses on the inherent strengths of an individual, family or community, then building upon them.
2. Inclusive. Addressing the needs of all youth by ensuring that our approach is culturally responsive.
3. Engaging youth as partners. Ensuring the intentional, meaningful and sustained involvement of youth as equitable partners in the programs, practices and policies that seek to impact them.
4. Collaborative. Creating meaningful partnerships within and across sectors to effectively align our work.
5. Sustainable. Addressing long-term planning through funding, training, capacity building, professional development and evaluation in order to ensure ongoing support and engagement of youth.

The training will begin promptly at 5pm and end 8pm, dinner and childcare will be provided both evenings. Please arrive between early to check in.
