NEW! Monthly Consultation: Advanced Topics in Strengthening Youth/Young Adult Peer Support

Pathways RTC is beginning a series of monthly consultation web-meetings focused on "Advanced topics in strengthening youth/young adult peer support." Each meeting will have its own topic, in an area such as skill building, supervision, coaching and training, organizational policies and procedures, hiring and onboarding, and more. Each meeting will include a brief introduction to the week's topic and a related practical resource – strategy, tool, set of research findings, template, etc. The meeting will then have a period of focused discussion in which attendees can ask questions and share knowledge and ideas relevant to the day’s topic, followed by an open discussion of any topic related to youth/young adult peer support. To allow for active discussion, registration will be limited.
