Got Trainers?  Build That Cadre!

Have you ever wondered how to strengthen your program’s professional development infrastructure for less cost and greater sustainability? The ultimate goal of professional development (PD) is the effective implementation of strategies that positively impact the health and well-being of young people. Without a viable infrastructure for program PD efforts, it is difficult, if not impossible, to achieve sustainable change. This session will provide the knowledge and skills on how to recruit cadre members with the right skills and talents and how to improve the functionality of your core team. The newly developed How to Build a Training Toolkit will be unveiled and reviewed during this session.
