Youth Services Certificate at Rhode Island College

National leaders for Out of School Time programs advocate for providers and youth workers to have education in addition to job-related training experiences.  In support of that position, the RI STEM Center has developed a NEW professional program, a Certificate in Youth Services. It is being offered at Rhode Island College and starts this summer.

a)      The 4-course certificate is designed for persons who work with youth in some capacity – either full or part-time, volunteer or paid.
b)      Prerequisites are a high school diploma or GED, and an Introductory Psychology course.
c)      One course is offered each semester (summer, fall, spring, and summer) as a hybrid model (50% online, 50% face-to-face) to accommodate those who are working.
d)      Students start and finish together, as a cohort.

The first cohort starts on July 1.

Interested?  Questions?
Contact the RI STEM Center at 401-456-2799  or email:  ristem@ric.edu.
The program’s brochure with more information can be found at http://www.ric.edu/stemcenter.
Application forms can be downloaded at  http://www.ric.edu/youthservices.

Candidates who have not completed an Introductory Psychology course can do so at local institutions in the first summer session, (usually May 15 – June 30)
