Youth Development Certificate Program

Developed in partnership with Queen’s University, The Youth Development Certificate (YDC) Program is the first Canadian Certificate program in youth development.

In order to work with youth effectively, it is essential to build adult capacity to support positive young peoples’ development through practices, processes, policies, and programs.

In this five-day foundation level course, we’ll introduce you to the evidence based principles and practices that will help you:

  • Learn about youth engagement as a strategy to support positive youth development;
  • Identify and negotiate influences that will impact your practice with youth;
  • Assess individual and organizational readiness to apply the approach within your setting;
  • Work in youth-adult partnerships; and
  • Develop strategies to monitor, evaluate and extend these efforts.
