Youth Thrive Course

The Center for the Study of Social Policy developed a course based on the key components of the Youth Thrive Framework, including understanding the impact of trauma on development; youth resilience; the importance of social connections; helping young people better understand their own development; concrete supports in times of need; and social, emotional, behavioral, intellectual, and moral competence in youth.

This intensive course is recommended for anyone involved with residential, educational, or community-based programs; services and supports for adolescents and their families; social services; parents, guardians, and adult allies; and others. The Youth Thrive Framework modules focus on the following themes:

  • Young peoples' development
  • Youth resilience
  • Social connections
  • Concrete supports in times of need
  • Social, emotional, behavioral, intellectual, and moral competence in youth

This course consists of three 6-hour classes and participants receive a manual, handouts, and access to additional resources.
