Training Coordinator

California Youth Connection is looking for a Training Coordinator for the Y.O.U.T.H. Training Project (YTP), a project of CYC. YTP is a unique collaboration between current and former foster youth (ages 16-24), child welfare professionals, and youth-serving organizations. We train youth and young adults with experience in foster care to develop and deliver youth-centered, best-practice training for professionals who support youth and young adults. Many of the trainers have multi-year relationships with YTP, during which they grow into exceptional trainers, advocates, and leaders.

The Training Coordinator coordinates the Y.O.U.T.H Training Project (YTP) certification of Youth Trainers (current and former foster youth who are responsible for facilitating trainings). In partnership with youth/young adults and staff, they develop innovative curricula, and also plan and execute trainings statewide, including the semi-annual statewide conferences, mental health project, and local trainings.
