Starting June 1 the training calendar will look a little different. First, we’ll launch a few new work groups and move all work groups to a bi-weekly meeting schedule. We will also offer one of our regular one-day trainings, Introducing a Trauma-Informed Approach, online via a series of webinars.
New Work Groups
Peer Educator Training: As a follow-up to Teresa Casullo’s webinar Growing Youth Educators, this work group will focus on developing training material for youth peer educators, sharing and refining training materials already developed, and contributing to a training manual. Teresa Casullo and Michele Luc will host this work group.
Practicing Social Media Platforms: This work group will provide a forum for providers who are exploring and beginning to use virtual meeting and social media platforms. It will give participants an opportunity to practice basic functions of various virtual meeting/social media platforms and obtain insights and advice from more experienced peers. This work group will be hosted by Heather and Marisol.
Component 2 (CAPP & SRAE): This work group will focus on developing and sharing workshop material dedicated to Component 2 programming. Topic areas may include life skills, financial literacy, career exploration, digital literacy, citizenship, and relationship and communication skills. This group will also explore how programming can be done virtually since youth summer programs will be closed. The work group will be hosted by Jutta.
Existing work groups (STI/HIV Prevention, Healthy Relationships, and Pregnancy Prevention) will continue on a bi-weekly schedule. The current SRAE work group will merge with the Component 2 work group.
Moving Trainings Online
Usually, in June we offer a one-day training: Introducing a Trauma-Informed Approach. Since we are not able to do any face-to-face trainings for a while, we are creating a virtual training, a series of 3 webinars beginning June 16. Please join us for:
- Understanding Trauma and its Impact
- Principles of a Trauma-Informed Approach
- Integrating Trauma-Informed Care into Organizational Practice.
Remember to register for any meeting or webinar you want to attend. You’ll find the registration links on the training calendar.
