a couple weeks ago, i was in reno for the premiere of our half-day training seminar for youth workers, called “the core”. we have had this crazy notion of creating all new content, complete with media support, for each year. it’s a bear! i’m usually jazzed about each year’s content. but i have to say, i’m SO STOKED about this year. i just think it’s some of the most helpful content we’ve ever created — something that every single paid or volunteer youth workers would benefit from.
the helping hurting kids theme is so timely. it just seems like there are more and more hurting kids these days, more than ever. and i’ll be honest, i don’t have a clue what the real issues are surrounding cutting. and there are so many other issues like that.
this day gives youth workers a massive dose of understanding, along with wonderful coaching about how our role is to be shepherds, not therapists. i so wish i’d been exposed to this day of training years ago. and i can’t wait to go out and present this content to 20,000 youth workers all over the country.
here’s the core website, where you can check out the outline for the day, the training team, the locations, and more.
