These workshops have been developed keeping in mind the diverse educational and practice backgrounds of youth workers. Whether you are a relatively new youth worker or a long-time veteran, the workshops will introduce you to new ideas or re-familiarize you with key terms and concepts to support better youth outcomes.

Capacity Building is the “process of supporting individuals and community organizations to help them better identify and meet their needs. It involves building on existing skills, providing opportunities for people to learn through experience and increasing people’s awareness and confidence. Capacity is then the ‘ways and means needed to do what has to be done.”
