Close to 200 full-time staff at the Youth Policy Institute attended the annual Staff Development Conference on August 4 - August 6. Ranging from classes about leadership style to workshops on conflict management, the week was a huge success and staff was able to take back new knowledge to their sites across Los Angeles County.
Thank you to our wonderful guest speakers:
Jorge Raziel, President, Zealous Vision
Ulisses Curiel, Training and Development Manager, Youth Policy Institute
Beverly Matthews, Principal Consultant, Matthews Resources Services
Anne Laguzza, President, The Works Consulting
James D. Vigneau, Consultant
As part of the Staff Development week, on Friday, August 8, staff visited Echo Park Lake, where they participated in a scavenger hunt to piece together the Youth Policy Institute's mission, and went out on the lake on pedal boats. The fun day ended with a staff picnic on the grass.
