Jeremy Triblett developed the 10 Components of Youth Centered Programs (10-CYCP) training after more than a decade of coaching youth work professionals and directing citywide after-school initiatives. He has identified 10 facilitation components needed that create enthusiastic learning environments for youth. Collectively, these components increase youth engagement, class productivity and staff competencies.
Youth Work Professionals learn how to help youth feel mentally, emotionally and physically safe. Youth feel safe in programs where facilitators clean their facilities, account for furniture and supplies, and encourage positive interactions consistently.
Youth work professionals are introduced to multiple strategies for creating a culture of collaboration, inclusivity and interdependence. When facilitators provide opportunities for youth to depend on each other’s skills and abilities, they create bonds, exercise empathy and learn to mediate their conflicts.
Youth Work Professionals practice helping youth make better decisions and think about their actions. When adults make planning and reflection a routine, youth gain a sense of ownership over their learning and become willing to lead in new ways.
Youth Work Professionals practice structuring activities, developing learning objectives and supporting youth who struggle. When facilitators create a culture of support, youth become motivated to learn and willing to make mistakes.
