Positive Youth Development Training May 9th!

Sunday May 9th


Please join us for our upcoming Yellow Brick Road Training just in time for Mother's Day! This training is free and open to the public but seating is limited so please R.S.V.P. soon. We’ll be learning about Positive Youth Development from YBR founder and nationally renowned youth advocacy expert Jerry Fest. What is PYD? What are "risk factors"? What are "protective factors"? What are "developmental assets"? What does "resiliency" look like for youth and how can we foster resiliency in our daily interactions with young people? Jerry Fest will answer all these questions and more in this introduction to the basics of Positive Youth Development, a federally recognized best practice for youth service providers. Vegetarian lunch and coffee will be provided. Hope to see you all there!

Please R.S.V.P. for location at
