Learn How to Work Better with Youth

December 16, 2021

The Circle Salt Spring Education Society is offering a new ‘Methods and Tools for Deeper Connections with youth’ course at the end of January 2022.

This offering is ideal for individuals who work with youth in a variety of contexts, whether it be formal educational settings, after-school programming, or even more personal and familial relationships.  It can also be used with whole staff teams to nurture collegial relationships built through learning together towards a common goal of supporting student social-emotional development.

The Circle delivers innovative, evidence-based social-emotional educational programs for children and youth in our school district. Facilitation is part of what makes our programs successful.

This program will ensure that you are able to connect with the youth you work within a meaningful and supportive way. You’ll build trust and relationships and develop strong practices to encourage personal growth and development.

In a fun-filled, hands-on set of sessions, you’ll get a chance to lead a group, design and play games that work, as well as develop strong communication and facilitation techniques that you can use in any group situation.

Our ‘Methods and Tools for Deeper Connections with Youth’ involves a total of 10 hours of learning and development.

Give the Gift of Connection with Youth this Christmas. To yourself and the youth in your life or to someone who is interested in growing meaningful connections with youth.
