Dynamic team members understand the value of continuous professional development and took advantage of that learning opportunity by participating in the 2018 NAWDP Annual Youth Symposium.
The event this year was held in Chicago from December 12-14th and is considered an excellent investment in our Youth Programs. This is also a great opportunity for DWFS team members from across the country to spend time learning together and sharing best practices.
Some of the sessions offered included: Academic Training Initiatives, Serving the Needs of Priority Populations, Creating and Strengthening Career Pathways, Improving Work Based learning and Employer Engagement and Leadership and Personal Development. Click link for more details nawdpyouth.pdf
These are topics that we value along with the Relationship Building opportunities between our very talented team members.
