University of Minnesota Extension and North Dakota State University Extension have partnered to offer the youth development brown bag webinar series since 2010. The purpose is to provide research-based information on hot topics, trends and program ideas for youth workers over the lunch hour.
Exploring the research behind positive youth development can be critical to how we understand and work with youth. In this class you will learn skills and create resources to help you work with young people.
WeConnect is both a program model and a curriculum that helps young people see that they are participants in a global society. It prepares them to thrive in culturally-diverse settings. Developed for middle school-aged youth, but can be adapted for other age groups.
This training builds an understanding of how to support social emotional learning (SEL). Participants explore practices that introduce SEL opportunities into existing programs. They walk away with ways to support social emotional skill growth.
