Youth Works Methods: Ask-Listen-Encourage
Intended Audience: OST Frontline Staff and Supervisors, Summer Program Staff
Positive relationships can open the gateway to learning. Studies find that relationships with “warmth, connectedness, good communication and support” aid in positive youth development and are connected to academic success (National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine, 2002). Asking effective questions, listening to youth and encouraging youth through positive and specific feedback can help to build positive relationships and may influence intrinsic motivation.
*Light snacks will be provided, feel free to bring additional snacks if necessary.
PLEASE NOTE: There is a minimum of 8 participants needed for this training. If there are less than 8 registrants, you will receive an e-mail from Family League that the session has been cancelled. In the event of a cancelled session and the session can be rescheduled, you will receive an e-mail with the new training date.
If you need to cancel your registration for any reason, within 48 hours of the scheduled training, please make sure to inform us: email@example.com
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. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
