If you believe your program offers a quality experience for your participants but also think doing even better is ideal, this new online course, Designing Quality Youth Programs, is for you. This course will take you through an eight step process focused on a rewarding journey of organizational improvement that recognizes each setting is different, every program is unique, and each improvement requires a targeted set of strategies. The process is designed to be individualized so it fits your mission and philosophy, reflects input from your young people and staff, and implements strategies that make sense for your program. These change strategies become a direct link to your organizational policies, structures, and activities and enable you to have a holistic approach to program improvement.
This course can be supplemented with the companion book, Designing Quality Youth Programs. Regardless of whether you choose to use the book or just want to stay with the online course, get ready to venture out of your comfort zone, get into a “stretch” position, and learn how to take a critical look at your program’s potential!
The cost of the course allows up to 50 of your staff to take the course until December 31 of the current year. After that time, you/your camp will need to purchase the course again for the following year. Your staff may complete the program at their convenience. A certificate of completion can be printed upon completion of the course.
