Providing direct leadership to youth in recreational settings can be a challenging experience. Join this 7.5 hour course to learn how to implement the five HIGH FIVE® guiding principles that contribute to a supportive and healthy experience for children. Although HIGH FIVE® was designed for people working with 6-12 year olds, the 5 principles apply to older youth as well. Learn ways to make positive child-centred interactions, and effective, age-appropriate ways to address behaviour challenges.
Consisting of training, resources and tools, the HIGH FIVE® system is based on years of research and consultation with experts, and is the only quality assurance standard in North America designed to specifically support the safety, well-being and healthy development of children in sport and recreation programs. Learn best practices for healthy childhood development, and get certified.
