EWDD’s Youth Services staff at the Systemwide Professional Development and Personal Enrichment Day
EWDD’s Youth Team conducted a system wide professional development and personal enrichment day Wednesday June 5, 2019.

Approximately 46 individuals attended, the majority of which were case managers. Topics included “Find Your Future,” and “Self-Care.”

The Mayor’s Office recently launched the Find Your Future 2.0 platformas a pilot to engage young people. The session provided training for case managers on how to use the revamped version of the job and support services website and showed case managers how to utilize the website to engage program participants.

Additionally, a representative from the County of Los Angeles Department of Mental Health presented and provided resources for case managers regarding Self-Care, Resilience, and Stress Management.

The training was valuable for EWDD Youth Staff, as the team wants to be more intentional about the professional and personal development being delivered to the YouthSource system as it is tasked with engaging some of the most vulnerable young people in the City.
