As part of this training, children and youth programming promising practices adaptations as a result of the COVID-19 public health emergency will be explored.

This virtual skills-based training series on children and youth programming will consist of three virtual training sessions for a total of 4.5 hours, and 3.5 hours independent study. Directions for independent study of this training will be sent to participants in a logistics email one week before the training, to include virtual training login information. It is critical that advocates attend all sessions, as each session builds off the skills-based work in the previous session. Due to the interactive, skills-based nature of this training series, participants will need to have access to and utilize a web camera throughout each training session.
