The Responsive Teen Advisory Council
Now that you have a Teen Advisory Council at your program, what’s the next step? This activity-filled training provides the answer by introducing a strong SEL-based framework and routines that can help council members build valuable communication and social-emotional learning skills while cultivating positive, meaningful relationships with their peers and with adults. The end result will be more focused, connected, fun, and effective council meetings!
Please note: Only afterschool practitioners working with middle school youth should register for this training. Completion of “Teen Advisory Councils (Part 1 & 2)” is recommended before taking this training.
