Event description

Description

Youth Program Quality Initiative (YPQI) Youth Work Method Series

Best practice professional development training for youth program staff:

Do the youth in your program have opportunities to work together in groups, teaching and learning from each other?  Cooperative learning is an excellent way to nurture youth leadership, build community, and keep things fun.  Cooperative learning is a purposeful learning structure coordinated and facilitated by the adult where youth work interdependently with one or more peers. Groups can range from pairs to small teams and be formed based on certain criteria, planned by the adult, self-selected by the youth participants, or formed randomly to promote interaction. This interactive workshop will equip participants with grouping strategies and ways to think about building cooperative learning into any program offering.
