It's Time!

The most valuable thing I learned was good, solid, usable ideas for performance indicators for the core competencies.                                                                                                            Alex Cornwell

FOUS provides an array of quality youth development training. Our most requested training is Advancing Youth Development.

Advancing Youth Development Training (AYD) - 21 Hour/6-Week  is a nationally acclaimed course designed for front-line youth workers who interact with adolescents on a daily basis. 

AYD aims to help youth workers to:

  • Gain familiarity with the youth development approach and use this approach to explore, share, and learn new strategies for working with young people.

  • Strengthen their ability to communicate their ideas, expertise, and experience to their constituencies: board members, families, co-workers, community leaders, and youth.

  • Discuss practical strategies for integrating a youth development approach into their programs.

  • Develop an informal peer network and become ongoing resources to each other.
