YPQI Methods Workshops – Feb 11 (Tucson), Feb 13 (Flagstaff)

The Youth Program Quality Intervention (YPQI) Methods workshops give 21st CCLC staff practical skills that they can implement immediately. These interactive and hands-on courses provide participants with a set of research-based and time-tested strategies for working with youth that are geared to improve the quality of our programs.

Phoenix 85007

*All Day Workshop – 9:00am-3:30pm

Active Learning – Do you know the difference between active learning and “hands-on” learning?  Giving youth materials is just the beginning.  This interactive workshop introduces the “ingredients” of active learning, explains the role that active learning plays in the experiential learning cycle, and helps participants create more powerful learning opportunities for youth.

 Youth Voice – Are you providing young people with authentic, meaningful choices throughout your program? Does your program reflect the input of the youth involved? Research shows that quality programs incorporate youth input at both activity and organizational levels. This workshop will emphasize the importance of offering real choices and meaningful participation to youth, and nurturing youth leadership. This interactive workshop is focused on providing meaningful choice within activities and opportunities for youth input within the youth program itself.

Planning and Reflection – Are you engaging youth in the critical life skills of planning and reflection?  Are you ready to be more intentional about including planning and reflection strategies into your daily routine and activities but not sure where to start?  This interactive workshop will introduce participants to powerful and easy to use methods that promote youth engagement in planning, implementing, and evaluating activities and projects. The planning and reflection process can turn a fun activity into a powerful learning experience!
