IMPORTANT UPDATE: Given the recommended social distancing guidance due to COVID-19, we made the decision to cancel our in-person training in Oakland from June 16-17 and have not made plans for an in-person training the remainder of 2020. 

In the meantime, we will be rolling out a new, four-part online training option (see below) to ensure that Award Coordinators are prepared to oversee the program within their schools and organizations by the fall.


Online Award Delivery Training

The Award Delivery course provides an international certification for Award Coordinators and Adventurous Journey Supervisors and Assessors. The course provides trainees with the knowledge and skills required to implement the Award program successfully in their organization and support participants through their Award journey. It also qualifies them to train others to serve as Award Leaders and Adventurous Journey Supervisors and Assessors.

If your organization is ready to start delivering the Award, or if you have new staff or volunteers joining your Award team, please register for our upcoming Online Award Delivery Training. Please note: your organization must complete the Award licensing process prior to training Award Coordinators.


PART ONE: Award Induction

New Award Coordinators will take online modules on Award Induction, Award Delivery, the Online Record Book, and the Adventurous Journey Pre-Learning.

PART TWO: Award Center Management

After completing part one, new Award Coordinators will learn about Award Management, including how to run the Award, best practices to sustain an effective Award Center, roles and responsibilities, and license requirements and review. This course will be offered via video conference in two parts in July and will be scheduled based on Award Coordinator availability.

PART THREE: Onboarding your Award Center

For new Award Centers, individual meetings will be set up with your Award Center by your Program Officer for 1:1 support and check in on your annual plan, recruitment, award ceremonies, licensure, and more. You’ll have your Award Center-specific questions answered and further resources provided upon request.

PART FOUR: Continuing Education

Based upon your feedback, we’ll be launching monthly trainings on a variety of topics that often arise when delivering the Award. Here’s a preview of the topics we’ll be discussing this fall:
    • Successfully Managing Participants Using the Online Record Book
    • Planning and Preparing for an Adventurous Journey
    • Employing Cognitive Coaching to Develop Self-Reflection

Register below for the Summer 2020 training! Deadline to register is June 26th, 2020. We will announce the dates for Part 2 of the training by July 1.
