Nationally renowned trainers will present a series of workshops across Indiana to help those who work with children fine tune mentoring practices, instill grit in college-bound young adults, better serve children with behavioral problems, and develop more effective organizations.
The Indiana Youth Institute is bringing four experts to host a series of half-day trainings. The trainings are designed for youth workers, teachers, youth ministers, family service providers, and others who work directly with children. Separate pricing options combined with two sessions each in the morning and afternoon give youth workers the flexibility to come for the whole day or a half day.
The morning sessions will run from 9 a.m. to noon while the afternoon trainings run from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The trainings will be presented Feb. 19 in South Bend, Feb. 20 in Merrillville, March 5 in New Albany, March 6 in Evansville, March 19 in Fort Wayne and March 20 in Indianapolis.
The cost is $20 to attend one session or $40 for all day. Individuals can register online with a credit card at www.iyi.org/training_registration. Onsite check-in begins 30 minutes in advance of each session. Continuing Education Units for the workshops are available through various professional organizations; details can be found at www.iyi.org.
These trainings are supported by Lilly Endowment Inc., The Clowes Fund, and the Nicholas H. Noyes, Jr. Memorial Foundation.
