The Maine Youth Action Network’s vision is for communities throughout Maine to foster the healthy development of youth and create a thriving network of engaged leaders. We do this work through a series of local and statewide initiatives, including hosting and providing training to adults. Our 2018-2019 professional development training series is designed specifically for adults working with youth to grow the network of adult allies in Maine, strengthen the knowledge and skills of network members, and promote high quality work of local trainers. This series is offered free to any interested adult in Maine. Space is limited to 40 participants.
The attached registration includes a full-day training hosted by MYAN and free lunch.
The Maine Youth Action Network staff represents a wide range of expertise related to youth engagement, including experience with youth and adult programming that spans experiential education, mediation, participatory action research, diversion programs and restorative practices, implicit bias, anti-bias education, bullying/harassment prevention, risk & protective factors, and more. The program currently holds the Youth Engagement contract within Maine Prevention Services, which is overseen by the Maine CDC, along with grant funding from the Nellie Mae Education Foundation and the Hudson Foundation.
