Youth Serving Professionals

Youth-serving professionals throughout our state include teachers, afterschool providers, residential treatment staff, coaches, group leaders, and essentially anyone who works to meet the needs of youth identified in the Five Promises or in the Results Framework for Iowa Youth. Essentially, if you come in contact with youth in a structured, sustained way, you could be classified as a youth-serving professional.

This segment of the ICYD website is designed to meet your needs as you explore best practices to work with youth, try to find additional content-specific resources, market your program and/or youth development, and try to engage youth. If you are looking for materials for parents, please visit the "Parent" tab or the "Community Toolbox" for more resources.
