The youth development approach is rooted in viewing youth and their assets rather than their problems. In order to work with youth effectively, it is essential to build adult capacity to support positive youth development through practices, processes, policies, and programs.


In this foundation level course, we’ll introduce you to the core principles and practices associated with working from a youth development approach to:

·         learn about youth engagement as a strategy to support positive youth development;

·         identify and negotiate influences that will impact your practice with youth;

·         assess individual and organizational readiness to apply the approach within your setting;

·         work in youth-adult partnerships;

·         develop strategies to monitor, evaluate and extend these efforts.


The cost of the full five-day certificate program is $600 plus HST ($678.00), per person. This cost includes all required materials and includes breakfast, lunch, and refreshments. Upon registering for the course, you will be emailed a confirmation and instructions for payment of the full amount of the certificate program.
