May 1, 2012 at 10:45 pm | Posted in Programs | Leave a comment

Professional development is a broad term that can refer to a variety of education, training, and support opportunities available to youth workers. Studies have shown that the professional skills of youth workers are the single most important factor in determining the success of a quality afterschool program or other youth program. It may also reduce burnout and help youth workers both to stay in the field and to advance within it. These workers serve on the front lines every day in hundreds of programs across the St. Louis metropolitan area.

Learn new techniques and cutting-edge information on subjects like collaboration, youth development, positive guidance techniques, and group games through St. Louis for Kids trainings. Throughout the year, you can select from a variety of high-quality (and affordable) trainings presented at a convenient location.
