Older youth need to believe that staff listen to them and genuinely care about what they think. Come to our "Ask-Listen-Encourage" workshop in which participants will learn how to ask effective questions, about the concept of active listening, and how to give effective, encouraging responses to youth and their work. All of the skills discussed in this workshop will also help programs improve in the "open-ended questions" and "non-evaluative language" items found in the Encouragement scale under YPQA's Supportive Environment Domain.
Any YEN staff
This workshop is free and open to YAS and YEN providers funded by The Children's Trust.
Project RISE requires that all attendees register online at https://collabornation.net/login/projectrise before the day of the training.
Older youth need opportunities to actively process, rather than passively receive, information; in other words, they need to engage in active learning. "Active Learning" is an interactive, skill-building workshop in which participants will experience active learning firsthand and learn six strategies to support active learning in youth, such as providing stimulating activities and engineering success while allowing for mistakes. By the end of the workshop, participants will incorporate these six elements into a lesson plan that they can bring back to their programs. All of the skills learned in this workshop are also found in the YPQA's Supportive Environment Domain and will help programs improve in the areas of Active Engagement, Skill-Building, and Encouragement.
