CWLA Expands the PRIDE Training Program
Two new modules for the PRIDE (Parent Resources for Information, Development, and Education) Advanced and Specialized Training program have been released by the Child Welfare League of America (CWLA).
The first, Preparing Youth for Successful Adulthood, provides caregivers with the knowledge and skills necessary to assist youth with their healthy transition into adulthood. The four-session module focuses on the development of life skills for youth, such as getting a job, going to school, and learning how to cook. In addition, the training provides an integrated model that focuses on the importance of stable, consistent, and healthy relationships in helping youth learn life skills and, in turn, transition effectively into adulthood.
The second new module, Working Together to Improve Educational Outcomes for Youth in Care, is intended to enhance participants' knowledge and skills that will enable them to act as an education advocate and improve educational outcomes for youth in care. This includes youth living with foster parents or with kin. The information may also be helpful to adoptive parents and to staff of residential group care facilities.
