Preparation for Your Training

Get Started: Preparing for Your Training

We are excited to partner with the Boys & Girls Club of America to both deliver a three-day training experience, as well as prepare participants for delivering their own Playworks-branded training. Watch the video below on an introduction to Playworks training.

For participants attending the training and the training of trainers, review and complete the four courses located on this information site. All of the material is required prior to participating in the training of trainers portion of the week. You can find the material on this website, and must be complete—including the check for understanding—by January 22, 2020.

Objectives

The multi-day training will equip participants with a working knowledge of the power of play, group management for youth, game facilitation strategies, and preparing for indoor recess. Additionally, participants invited to participate in the training of trainers portion of the week will be equipped to train Boys and Girls Club internal staff in the Power of Play and Group Management 1 trainings.
