This training is open only to staff of DYCD COMPASS programs.
How can we better understand the values, behaviors and perceptions of older youth that impact if and how they show up for programs? What are the practices that can help move them from dependence to independence? This two-day training is designed to assist practitioners in examining these key questions and exploring the youth development approach to working with older youth. Participants will drill down on the factors that impact engagement and retention, learn strategies and problem solve around how to create meaningful experiences that foster intrinsic motivation and authentic participation.
