Leadership Matters

Monday, September 30

Stepping into a leadership role in the field of youth development is often an on-the-job learning experience. People choosing a career in youth development don't begin by hoping to supervise adults, manage budgets and conduct evaluations; staff enter the field because of a passion and interest in supporting youth. This training explores youth work management, leadership skills, and provides intentional strategies targeted to youth work practice. 

This 6-hour training meets on Monday, September 30.

Who should attend

Youth work managers/supervisors and volunteer managers
