Youth On Fire Cohort

Young people have always been at the forefront of social change. If it had not been for 16-year- old Barbara Johns who organized a school walk out in protest of school segregation, gaining national attention and the interest of the NAACP, Brown vs. The Board of Education would have never happened. The key to a better future lies in our children and youth. So, as educators, we have a responsibility to build the capacity of our young people so that they can lead. Our future depends on it.

The Youth on Fire Cohort seeks to train professionals working in direct service to institute stronger and more effective youth empowerment practices and design programs that hold substantive youth voice. The goal is to increase the capacity of staff and organizations to include youth in decision-making processes and to empower youth by giving them the concrete skills and theoretical foundations for purposeful social engagement.

The Youth on Fire Cohort will convene direct service professionals once every month for 6 hours between October 2018 and May 2019. The cohort meetings will be aligned to group-development principles in conjunction with the academic year, to support participants to implement their learning each month directly with youth. Each meeting will utilize both best practices in youth empowerment as well as peer-coaching and reflective practices. Additionally, each cohort member will develop an individualized work plan for engaging youth leaders in completing a youth-led project in the Spring of 2018. Each participant will receive:

●      60 hours of professional development

●      Up to 3 hours of one on one professional coaching

●      The Youth on Fire Curriculum Toolkit

●      A certificate of completion

●      E4E Online Subscription Annual Access

2018 Dates: October 9, November 6, December 4

2019 Dates: January 8, February 5, March 5, April 2, April 30, May 14, May 28

Time: 9:30am-3:30pm

Program Management Cohort

to Jun 18

Program Management Cohort

With the passage of Proposition 49, after school programming became a huge industry. Agencies began creating infrastructure for managing multiple sites instead of one or two. This made way for new position that was required to bridge the distance between Program Directors and Program Coordinators: the Program Manager. The Program Manager is typically responsible for overseeing several staff across several sites. They have to negotiate a complex set of intersectional relationships with agencies, school sites, staff and funders. This job is DIFFICULT and too often managers are thrown into these roles without support or professional development. The Program Manager Cohort will convene program managers once every month for 3 hours at DCYF between October 2018 and June 2019 and provide professional development on the following relevant topics: Multi Site Supervision, Program Design, Staff Development, Supervision & Coaching, Program Assessment & Evaluation, Stakeholder Relationships, The Collective Impact Model, Strategic Partnerships and Collaboration, Problem Solving, Time Management  

 Each participant will receive:

●      30 hours of professional development
