Professional Development Opportunities

It’s Important to Keep Learning

Research suggests that young people’s behavior and engagement improves when out of school time providers receive ongoing professional development. Research also shows that staff who participate in ongoing professional development are more engaged and responsive to the youth they serve.

In addition to our Train to Gain and Youth Work Methods training series, Collective for Youth offers high quality customized trainings to meet the needs of your youth serving organization. Our experienced trainers can work directly with you to tailor workshops and trainings to meet staff needs. For more information, please fill out an informational request here or contact Collective for Youth directly at

We offer numerous learning opportunities for youth development professionals that are designed to improve practices and outcomes, including regularly scheduled community workshops as well as customized trainings. Trainings are pre-approved to offer participants childcare training hour credits for licensed school-age programs in Nebraska. We look forward to hearing from you!
