2014 Vermont Youth Justice Learning Opportunities

Join Us for Our Last Learning Event

Through This Program-

Using Dialogue Education to Teach and Implement

Evidence-Based Youth Justice Programs 


We invite you to develop deeper, more collaborative relationships with others serving youth in Vermont.  Join your dedicated and talented youth justice colleagues to reinvigorate your practice, while mastering tools to reach new levels of engagement, energy and productivity in our collective work towards reducing recidivism and improving outcomes for youth.

Wondering if this opportunity is right for you or someone you know?  Here is what past participants are saying:

  • “We are putting together a training-of-trainers event and are revamping the whole thing [as a result of attending this course]… We have used the skills in the [planning] meeting and will be using the skills to do the training. 
  •  “I found that applying the seven steps of design assisted me in narrowing down what made sense in order to provide the students an opportunity to learn - to get the most of the time we had together.”
  • “People engage more quickly and appear to have more fun.  They're engaged in their own learning—that’s observable!”
  • “I've never had the kids listen so well. I slowed down, looked at them, engaged with them. I had them share their views and their thoughts. We do this every night—and now that I have this confidence in myself, I feel more confident that they will receive information better and take it with them.”
  • “The students are more engaged as well as enjoying being more of a part of the learning.”
