Trauma Infused Youth Development Cohort Series. Trauma is getting more attention in recent times, and trainings on trauma are more common. So, what makes this opportunity different from others? My approach to trauma is rooted in social justice values that are grassroots, values the voice and experience of communities, and supports community wisdom to address the challenges experienced from trauma. All trainings are grounded in a "learn, apply immediately" framework that encompass information sharing, a working session, and modeling practices that can be used with children, youth, and families. Community wisdom is gathered after each training session and turned into a TOOLKIT that will serve as a resource on TIYD for participants.

Trainer Circle: A 6-Part Cohort for Facilitators. The best facilitators can design learning conditions that make every participant feel like a brilliant member of a learning community. Some of the greatest violence in our systems is initiated when we send some people the message that they are not smart enough, equipped enough, or worthy of being part of a team. Our facilitation methodology is built on the principles of equity and inclusion – that every person has something uniquely valuable to contribute, and that the facilitator unpacks and constructs learning with the group, rather than as a lecturer or instructor. This series is designed for coordinators, managers and leaders who find themselves “holding space” for others- perhaps in facilitating staff professional developments, running meetings, or designing curriculum for programs. Join us if you would like to deepen your skill in agenda design, increasing participant interaction and engagement, and unleash the power of your groups through dynamic reflection and group processes.

Behavior Management Series. Does this sound familiar: I would be a dope instructor if I didn’t have all these behavior interruptions! Well you are not alone. Supporting young people to work productively in groups is one of the most challenging aspects of youth work. As young people learn to navigate the world amongst 20 of their peers going through growth spurts, hormonal shifts and group dynamics we are sure to hit a hurdle or two. In this six-part cohort, practitioners will come together to better define what we mean by “good” vs “bad” behavior, how to balance the needs of the adults vs the youth, and the role of implicit bias in labeling and supporting children. We will hear from trauma specialists, behavior management experts and restorative practice coordinators to understand how to design the best interventions that create equitable learning conditions for all youth.

Building Intentional Communities. Designing a strong program is a complicated and nuanced art—one that requires cultural awareness, knowledge of social justice principles, and the practice of deep democracy. Given the right social conditions and held to high expectations, every young person has the opportunity to flourish. This training will support staff to define collective values, create a cohesive team unified in vision, behavior management strategies, and facilitation techniques.
