Itasca Networks for Youth will be sponsoring a Youth Program Quality (YPQ) Basics training for all Itasca Area Youth providers on December 15 from 9:00 to 2:00 at the University of Minnesota Extension classroom.  This training is open to anyone who works with youth outside of school in the Greater Itasca Area.

INYParticipants will dig into the specific practices as defined by the YPQ to gain an understanding, assess and identify strategies to improve their own practice.

In addition to the quality framework, the training will include an overview of Making Meaning with Multiple Data sets (M3) process that is used by the Itasca Networks for Youth in quality improvement planning.  The overview is designed to help teams prepare for the M3 process in January.

Jan Derdowski and Courtney Johnson, University of Minnesota Extension, will be the instructors for this class.  There is no charge for Itasca Area participants.  Lunch will be provided.
