PPJS is hosting a 1 week Training for Trainers presented by the NPJS. This is an excellent training for new agency training directors/trainers and a great refresher/professional development opportunity for existing agency trainers.

This is a course that trains folks in adult learning theory and focuses on how to be a good trainer regardless of the curricula. An NPJS established curriculum is used as the template for the sessions, addressing training of staff in programs that work with juvenile justice involved youth.
