"Awesome! I loved the interactivity, energy and specificity."
-Tutor, Roxbury Youth Initiative Term-Time
Spring 2021 Training:
Afterschool Tutor Summit! (All programs combine and have smaller breakout sessions).
We encourage all to join in the kick-off above! If conflicts cannot be avoided, a make-up will be Thursday, Feb 25, 6pm-8:30pm
The tutor certificate and kick-off summit is mandatory for new volunteers in PBHA tutoring programs, and strongly recommended for new PSN tutoring program volunteers. Volunteers should attend before beginning starting to tutor any youth, and need only attend the training once. Note: Due to the current COVID-19 Pandemic, this training will be conducted via Zoom online. As such, we will send zoom confirmations after confirming your registration.
The training covers:
The Asset Based Approach to Positive Youth Development
Tools for Tutoring (Meta-cognition and Scaffolding)
The Cooperative Discipline Approach to Behavior Management
Safety, Boundaries (especially online) and Cultural Competence
