The Institute for Youth Development provides quality training for all adults who work with children and youth in Out of School Time (OST) programs. These adults are also called youth development practitioners. Youth development practitioners deepen their understanding of positive youth development, engage in best practices and improve services to youth.

Trainings are available for every level from front-line staff to program managers to executive directors. Download the training descriptions here.
