Building a Positive Community with Teens - Part 2

In order to learn, stay engaged, and develop as individuals, teens need a safe, predictable, joyful and inclusive space where they can experience belonging, significance and emotional safety. They also need to feel comfortable taking risks and working with their peers.

How can you create such a space for the teens you work with? This active and interactive training provides specific strategies, fun group activities, and relationship-building meeting structures that will help you to establish a community that promotes positive experiences for teens.

Please note: Only afterschool practitioners working with middle school youth should register for this training.
