There are myriad factors that influence “youth engagement” including but not limited to cultural norms, emotional state, bias, racism, and others. The ways in which we traditionally examine youth engagement are ineffective and lead to added stress for education professionals, youth and their families. This workshop affords the opportunity for participants to examine their own lenses to identify the ways in which it may negatively impact youth behavior. The workshop also explores the many factors that youth experience that may show up as disengagement, as well as effective practices for addressing those factors in a safe, supportive, and culturally sensitive manner.

If you need to cancel your registration for any reason, please inform us within 48 hours of the scheduled training by contacting: Family League Help Desk; support@familyleague.org

Please review our Professional Development Policy below:

If a participant does not attend a training for which they have registered, or does not to notify the Family League of their inability to attend within 48 hours of the scheduled training, the organization will be invoiced a “missed session” fee of $50.00. Organizations will only be charged in the event of a “missed session” by an employee. If an agency fails to pay the missed session fee, their staff will no longer be able to access training offered by Family League of Baltimore. The 48 hour requirement does exclude extenuating circumstances such as a death in the family, serious medical emergency, programmatic emergency that would require the attendance of the registered individual, etc.

Our goal is to continue to maximize the professional development opportunities for our funded partners, while reducing the large number of no show attendees we have experienced over the last year. Thank you for your cooperation with this policy and hope that your staff continues to benefit from the opportunities that will be offered during the coming year.
