Event description

Description

The Youth Development Resource Center and Youth Development Alliance are partnering to bring Youth Work Methods trainings to Detroit's youth workers. These fun, interactive workshops will give you skills and activities you can put to use right away in your youth programs.


Do you know what it takes to build an emotionally and physically safe space for youth? Building an emotionally safe community of peers and adults is essential for youth to learn and develop as individuals. This interactive workshop will introduce participants to a variety of activities designed to support the community building process.

Building Community

Building Community focuses on promoting a climate in which youth can feel part of a group. Community building can take place in both structured and unstructured ways. Structured avenues include welcomes, icebreakers, problem-solving games, trust games, name games, and partner activities. Unstructured venues such as transition times are also contexts in which community building can occur.

The Method

The Building Community Method involves four strategies:

  • Create avenues for community building

  • Be involved and mindful

  • Don't leave anyone out

  • Promote respect for diversity
