DCYF University Pilot
DCYF is embracing a holistic approach to Capacity Building and Professional Development by designing a multilevel system for training and support. We aim to build a stronger youth worker workforce and increase the quality of services and that are available to San Francisco children, youth and their families by providing Capacity Building and Professional Development on an individual, programmatic and agency level. For individual youth workers we will provide professional development opportunities that increase the skills and abilities needed to implement high quality youth development programming. On the programmatic level our efforts will focus on building the capacity and ability for programs to engage in continuous quality improvement and to support staff with their professional development. Finally on the Agency level we will help organizations build and strengthen their systems and infrastructure in order to provide the solid foundation required for effective programs and staff.
DCYF University will provide an opportunity for staff and programs to become a “Specialist” by delving deeper into a specific subject matter. Within this pilot we are offering 3 areas of Specializations:
Youth Development Best Practices with a Training of the Trainer focus
Youth Development Best Practices with a Trauma Informed focus
Youth Leadership, Empowerment and Advocacy with a Staff focus
