Our Youth Worker Certification and our Youth Program Certification are specifically designed for youth oriented workforce professionals of all kinds — from One Stops, Job Corps, Community Organizations, Non- Profits, etc. Whether you are part of Admissions, Outreach, Facilitation, Career Readiness, Job Development or Counseling, this training is geared to you.
Youth Worker Certification is designed for professionals who work with youth and helps them understand why they get stuck and how to reach them on a deeper level. You learn how to help them move forward in life and become employable. This training discusses early childhood, nurturing, their thought process, bullying and much more. It gives youth workers skills in teaching emotional intelligence by the connections they create with their youth clients and the relationships they build with them. There are even segments on how they view their role as youth workers and their own behavior and attitudes. This course is certified and approved for continuing education credits [0.5 CEU’s] through the National Council on Family Relations.
Youth Program Certification is designed to train youth workers on business etiquette skills in a mock business meeting and provide coaching skills to them on how THEY in turn will coach the youth. The youth clients are then brought in and the youth workers lead this business meeting, coaching and training their youth clients. We also teach the youth to develop presentations on topics of their choice, presenting them at the front of the room, and practicing professional business etiquette skills such as handshakes, eye contact, communication skills, leadership skills and even appearance… all skills needed for successful job interviews!
