Welcome to Critical Tools for Working with Youth—the premier training program for non-professionals working with youth.

What is the Program?

This (CTFWWY) is a comprehensive 40-hour training program for lay persons working with youth in your community. It:

  • Teaches them to talk to youth using Empathetic Communication and Active Listening Skills;
  • Teaches them signs of different behaviours which may be indicative of issues the youth may be experiencing;
  • Instructs them regarding their legal limitations and reporting skills;
  • Helps them to know where to find the referral resources in their communities.
