10 Tips for Working With Youth

by Marion on June 20th, 2016
Hello Sprynters:

The National Afterschool Association in the US provides resources for those who work with children and youth in after school settings.

They have created a really simple and easy to remember series of tips for helping to build relationships with youth. They are easy to do, easy to remember, and easy to share with other staff and volunteers.

Check out the list at this site.


The MBA Symposium (More and Better Approach to working with youth) will be held:
November 23 – 24, 2016
Teatro Convention Centre, Milton ON

Presenters are invited to submit topics of interest to managers and staff who offer programs and services for youth ages 13 to 19 years (or any subset of that age range).

More information on this opportunity can be found in the Call for Presenters. Please click to access it.

The submission deadline is Monday, July 11, 2016.

The 2016 MBA Symposium is supported by Parks and Recreation Ontario and Play Works, founder of the Youth Friendly Community Recognition Program (the YFC application deadline is January 4, 2017 and more information and the application form can be found  here).

Interested delegates should save the date now, and look forward to the MBA brochure coming in August.
