The collaboration has drawn up training modules for three of the 10 core competencies that it has identified as necessary in order for youth development workers to be effective. The completed modules cover these competencies: “Involving and Empowering Youth,” “Cares for, Involves and Works with Families and Community” and “Communicates and Develops Positive Relationships with Youth.” A valuable, no-cost resource for youth organizations that want to make clear what skills they expect of their employees.
