Structure & Clear Limits (Baker City)
Structure & Clear Limits in a youth program lay the foundation for a safe environment that supoprts young people. Structure is the framework for a program and the offerings within it. It's what sets the stage for activities and youth engagement and includes schedules, staffing, routines, and program space. Clear Limits are the established boundaries set and reinforced by an adult, youth, or a partnership between the two. This method seeks a balance between being warm and caring but also setting high expectations and whenever possible, involves input from youth. This healthy balance is optimum for positive youth development. This training will help you learn and practice both Structure and Clear Limits, and give you tools and tips for implementing them in your program.
