Cooperative Learning - Methods Workshop (Seattle, Nov. 14)

Do the youth in your program have opportunities to work together in groups, teaching and learning from each other? Cooperative learning is an excellent way to nurture youth leadership, build community, and keep things fun. 

This interactive workshop will equip participants with grouping strategies and ways to think about building cooperative learning into any program offering.  

This workshop, part of the Youth Work Methods series, was designed by the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality to empower direct-staff with tools that will increase the quality of their work with youth.
