The success of any youth program depends on the knowledge, skills, and confidence of each youth worker, volunteer and program leader. To become truly competent takes an ongoing commitment to professional development.
YIPA’s MyYouthPro is a professional development framework of eight competency focus areas. You’ll find the framework flexible and comprehensive, offering you a unique way to complement your current training program.
