It is a challenge to build a staff of “lifers” in any workplace. Staff members come and go, leaving organizations to deal with high turnover rates, low capacity, and the task of finding suitable replacements. This workshop will discuss the value of cultivating talent from within an OST network, explore strategies for elevating and supporting talent discovered within youth development professionals, and provide techniques for aligning the skills of an individual youth development professional to the culture of an organization, and then with the culture of the OST network and community they serve.
