Short Activity on Engaged Supervision: 'Think Fast'
Adaptability and flexibility are key traits for anyone working in a youth-serving organization. Quick thinking, responsive actions, and the ability to improvise are skills that come with practice. Download our short activity that focuses on how all staff can be adaptive whenever they are actively supervising youth during programming, transition times, or other less structured times.
Incorporating Performance Management
To keep the youth in your care safe, you need the right staff in the right positions, with clear expectations and accountability. This creates a strong culture of safety. A robust performance management strategy does not just include end-of-year performance reviews. It requires a year-round approach through all stages of the employment cycle. We have compiled a resource on how your organization can incorporate consistent performance management through hiring, onboarding, and beyond.
