From February 23rd to 27th, our coaches Jharif and Tyhaim traveled to Chicago for a four-day training institute where they learned the fundamentals of sports-based youth development and trauma-informed coaching strategies. This intensive training incorporates both youth development principles, trauma-sensitive practices, and strategies for building positive culture within their programs. These skills will allow our coaches to use their unique knowledge of skateboarding in a way that helps them to build meaningful, lasting relationships with youth in need of positive adult role models.
